Yes, : Yes, you can have bronchitis without wheezing. Bronchitis means that the "bronchioles", the smaller tubes in your lungs, are inflammed. That occurs with viral or bacterial conditions. If your symptoms are worsening, or if you have fever, worsening cough, or any shortness of breath, you will have to be seen again immediately for a re-evaluation.
