Hi everyone. Well I've had problems recently with waking up wheezing. And about a week ago I went to the doctor for a physical cause I had another medical issue to deal with so I had the physical. And when the doctor did my physical he found a swollen lymph node in my neck & then he told me I probably got it cause I am probably getting a cold. But well the only time I feel sick like I got a cold is when I wake up wheezing & then this morning I woke up again this time it wasn't the wheezing that woke me up it was the itch in my throat & the wheezing & then I coughed up a lot of phlegm. I'm wondering why this could be happening & should I go back to my doctor about it? Or is it ok to just go grab some OTC Cold medicine to take care of it?

Waking up with a tight chest, cough, wheezing, and mucus.
Did you figure out what this was? I'm in the same boat!
