In brief: Asthma

The most common cause of chest wheezing is asthma.
Bronchitis, inhalation of a foreign body, cystic fibrosis and many other things could also cause wheezing. See a doctor for an examination and possibly a breathing test.

In brief: Narrow airway

All wheezing means is that one's airway is narrowed - think about a hose that one steps on when the water if flowing.
One's physician should be able to understand why wheezing-, the narrowed airway, is occurring. Some reasons can be relatively benign others may be much more serious.
