Curious about cause. I've had this problem for about 1 year. Could it possibly be sjogren's disease?

After sleeping for a few minutes wake up with pressure in chest/diaphragm area.
From this study (1 month ago):
I got my bartholomin's cyst about 6 years ago. It seems to swell when my immune system is fighting a bug. I have bronchitis right now and it seems my cyst has doubled in size. I have taken birth control pills from age 19 to 32 and again from 34-37 but not just now. I have also taken a few years of lithium medication for bi-polar from age 21-23 or so. Now I am taking allergy meds and some kind of antibiotics. I live in Japan. Sorry I don't readily know the names of the drugs I am taking.
