GERD: Coughing with wheezing at night can sometimes be caused by silent reflux. You need not have heartburn symptoms to have this be the case. Allergies can also cause this sometimes; perhaps something in your room (pillows, blankets, etc). See your doctor to be examined and make sure nothing else is going on and then to treat this properly.
