Bronchitis, asthma?: Do you smoke? This could be from asthmatic bronchitis most likely affected from cold symptoms please see your primary care provider if the wheezing or noisy breathing persist after four to five days of cold symptoms. This could be sign of sleep apnea please talk to your primary care provider regarding this.
