Hi everyone.. I'm 28, female, non smoker. My yearly physical is coming up so I plan to ask my doctor about this but until then, just curious as to what this is. If I wake up in the middle of the night and get up to use the restroom or get up for the morning, I've noticed that the first deep breath I take has a little wheezing at the end of the deep breath, inhale only. I can't hear it, I just feel it and I assume it is wheezing. This has been happening for years really but now I'm finally curious. I've noticed that if I lay flat on my back for a few minutes and I take a deep breath, the same thing happens. It doesn't happen if I lay on my stomach or my side and doesn't happen during the day when I'm up and moving. It's really just my first breath after sleeping all night and if I lay on my back for awhile. Any idea what this could be??
Since I was little, I have always gotten terrible colds and have had LOTS of sinus problems. There is no such thing as "a little cold" for me.. my colds are always bad - tons of mucus, congestion, and I always lose my voice every single time. Mucinex is my best friend. I didn't know if this wheezing could be a result of that? Or allergy related? Or asthma? Or lung cancer??
I don't have any shortness of breath or coughing at all.
I have the exact same thing you have described. Only when laying on my back and upon my first deep breath. This maybe started for me about 6-7 months ago out of the blue, I was not sick or anything. I am 34, non smoker. It makes me nervous, and my primary Dr didnt have a clue and we ruled out asthma and allergies... What did your Dr say?
Hi! This is very interesting. I have been having this same issue for the last four years. I went to my PCP last year and she had no idea what it could be. We did a chest xray and it was normal. I recently went back to my pcp for a visit and she recommended I see a pulmonologist, which will be next week.
Just curious if you have had any luck with an explanation, or diagnosis...
I have had this for three years as well. For me it is when I am lying down and I inhale, it isn't something you can hear but feel. I have talked with a few people and they say it can be from acid reflux. I do suffer from indigestion so I have figured it is probably that. It almost feels like little bubbles moving inside.
Hello all! I was just wondering if anyone had ever gotten a diagnosis on this? I too have had the same exact issues since I had my first child - 4 years ago now. I have been to pulmonologists and internists and I was told I have a SLIGHT asthma but nothing concerning - I've not had attacks or anything? Just curious as it's driving me nuts!
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?
