Question incomlete?: You have bad wheezing and you never smoked and you were told something recently
you definitely need to see your doctor, you may have COPD or a respiratory infection causing your symptoms.You need pulmonary function test and/or chest xray if indicated and properly treated with inhaled steroids and bronchodilaters.See your doctor asap.
