Re: Wheezing when laying down?? Help!

When I went for my yearly check up back in July, my doctor listened to my lungs and couldn't hear anything in my lungs. When I described what I experience, he did give me the name of a condition that occurs when you're lungs don't fill completely with air. Because mine happens after I've been laying down, he said when I breathe while laying down, I may not filling my lungs with air completely (taking shallow breaths) so when I get up and take the firsts couple of breaths, it makes that wheezing/stretching feeling in my lungs. Does that make sense?
