Infection: Could be an infection. Should get checked out for breathing problems. Infections can cause gillian barre which can affect peripheral nerves.

See below: Get yourself checked - you may need antibiotics and/or inhalers. "hard-time breathing" is worrisome unless you have a known history of lung disease. Where did you camp - ticks?
