Unhappy Wheezing wakes me up & then I can't breathe very well...

Hi everyone. Well I been having problems with wheezing (sounds like that candy pop rocks that pops in your mouth, that's what it sounds like in my lungs when I exhale) that wakes me up & then I can't breathe very well & I get chest pain have had this problem for a month now. I've tried using an extra pillow to prop me up so I can sleep more comfortably & that only worked temporarily & then it all would come back. So I went to the doctor he said he could hear my wheezing in my lungs, & said I had a swollen throat so he told me he thinks I have allergies & put me on Fexofenadine 180mg once a day, & on an Albuterol Sulfate Inhaler that I gotta use twice every 6 hours. Unfortunately I been on it for a week & it hasn't been working...I still been waking up wheezing & I get very little sleep after that cause I'm just trying to be able to catch my breath. There's been a few times I couldn't breathe at all...so Monday I'm going back in cause it seems like it's just getting worse. I'm also on Atenolol 50mg once daily for High Blood Pressure, & Prilosec 40mg once daily for a Hiatal Hernia. Any idea what else could be causing this?
