My boyfriend was laying down w/ my head on his chest and i could hear wheezing. what does it mean?

Possibilities...

Head
There is a good saying in medicine that says "all that wheezes is not asthma". There is a long list of medical conditions that can cause wheezing including smoking, viral illness, airway obstruction by mucous or a foreign body, heart failure etc. If the problem continues I would encourage you to seek medical attention promptly.

I have had a chokey productive cough for months. No pain in chest, no fever, worse when I lay down. Doesn't seem to be drainage. No wheezing.

Could be allergy

Chest
Although this could be reflux--allergy is another cause--you may try an over the counter allergy med in the evening and see if this resolves

Truly, there is nothing available over-the-counter for wheezing...and rightly so. Bronchodilators like albuterol are the medication that give your immediate relief of wheezing BUT overuse can lead to deadly outcomes. Your personal doctor is prepared to evaluate & treat wheezing. Sometimes your doctor will enlist the assistance of an allergist or pulmonologist. Please make an appointment to see one

Dr. Taj Jiva answered:

Wheezing when I cough and chest pain . What could this be ?

See Doc/lung spec.

Chest_pain
Wheezing, cough and chest pain may suggest bronchial asthma, chronic or acute bronchitis etc. Need to see Doc for office spirometry and chest radiograph or see a lung specialist to make sure that you do not have bronchial asthma. Angina is less likely with cough and wheezing unless associated with congestive heart failure.

I start wheezing and my chest gets congested. Could it be asthma or my heart?

Get checked

In either case you would do better to have yourself checked. If asthma a rather simple spirometry may tell all. A cradiac test would also rule out or confirm any heart problems. Don't hesitate if you feel storng about these symptoms

Wheezing

Asthma
wheezing at night is a serious symptom of asthma and you should be checked out. could also be cardiac asthma, which is really congestive heart failure, but usually you would know that you have heart disease.

You have worry about congestive heart failure. Make sure the weight is not going up. There is no swelling of your feet. Keep a tab on salt intake.
