Shoulder elevation causes inhalation?

I'm having a weird symptom that I noticed a few months ago during exercise. I would sometimes feel as though there was some grinding or something in my chest or back (couldn't tell exactly where), when exercising. Through trial and error, I discovered that the movement causing it is elevation of my right shoulder, especially if I depress my left shoulder at the same time. The "grinding" is actually a bizarre sort of interruption in my breathing. It's like raising my shoulder forces me to inhale just a little, tiny bit. I've just recently moved, so I have not seen a chiropractor or doctor locally and was afraid that this sounds too weird to be taken seriously. I'd appreciate any advice or information you may be able to give!

The BioSkin Hinged Knee Skin is the lightest hinge available. The bicentric aluminum alloy hinge is offset to eliminate pressure at the joint line.
