Puzzling: Intermittant wheezing from asthma , the most common reason, can occur anytime. Typically, tho, it happens at night; after midnight. Nocturnal awakenings r common. Usually. better in the morning (theorized cortisol fluctuation). Smokers cough + wheeze worse upon arising. Wheezing from GERD after coffee, OJ, sausage? Worth an AM visit for exam, spirometry w / repeat post neb in office. Allergens?

Bronchial spasm: Your airway is made of tubes called bronchi. The smaller tubes at the ends are called bronchioles. They are lined with muscles that can constrict (squeeze) or dilate (expand). Anything that makes the bronchioles constrict (infection, allergies, etc.) will make you wheeze.
