I have had a productive cough for 2 weeks and I sometimes wheeze...I also smoke. Is this simply from smoking or something more?

In brief: Possibilities...

Possibilities include bronchospasm, acute bronchitis, gerd, post-nasal drip.
The cough will worsen with ongoing inflammation from smoking so smoking cessation is vital. Treatment depends on diagnosis and your doctor can help with this. Good luck!

In brief: Need evaluation

A cough that lasts longer than 1 week needs evaluation, especially with wheezing in a person that smokes.
Wheezing could be related to lung related causes like asthma or COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) or even related to the heart.
