Many causes but all: your symptoms point to a likely indoor allergy such as dust mite or pet dander. These allergies are potent triggers for asthma. Common medications like aspirin and ibuprofen can cause asthma-like symptoms in some people. Some Blood pressure medications (ACE inhibitors) can cause dry cough, but not wheezing. See your doctor to review your symptoms, have a exam and try to narrow down the cause.
