In brief: Bronchitis

This is virus caused in >95% of cases.
If you are wheezing and having any respiratory insufficiency (difficulty breathing) you should see a pulmonologist asap. Good luck and get better.

In brief: Definitely

Bronchitis symptoms are usually cough and wheezing.
In a non-smoker it is almost always viral and antibiotics are not useful. If your wheezing and cough are bad and you are low on oxygen then the doctor may prescribe a steroid and inhaler to help you breathe better. It is also possible that you have pneumonia. See a doctor tomorrow for exam.
