Thank for choosing HCM
In your case "lower respiratory tract inflammatory response" to some either exogenous agent or autoimmune response can not be neglected, it must be rule out, some time does manifest, in the same as you have described here, absolute eosinophilic count, x-ray study of chest should be done, if turned positive then treat it accordingly, and does not detect any abnormality then have opinion from orthopedic surgeon, have nice day.
