Wheezing and gurgling in right lung---when I Inhale

I have been wheezing since August 2008 when I inhale.
Only in my right lung.
Happens minimum once a day. I was prescribed an inhaler just over a month ago which usually relieves it. I do not have asthma (to my knowledge).
It doesn't matter if I'm standing, sitting, lying down, etc. Just happens out of the blue.
I am now getting short of breath all day for no reason, not tired, but feel like I can't get enough air.
Right before & during the wheezing it feels like a slight heaviness in the bottom of my lung (like fluid/mucous), then it starts to gurgle/rumble, then I start to wheeze (only when I inhale, not when I exhale). The wheeze sounds like a squeaky toy. The wheezing sound appears to come from the lower part of the lung.
I am 32, active, non-smoker (but I used to smoke many years ago), female, have 3 children, last 2 c-sections. During my last pregnancy (my son is now 3) I started getting really short of breath and PVC's (irregular heartbeat), which continued till now, but not nearly as bad now (doctors & cardiologist blame it on hormones as it started when I was pregnant).

The wheezing started back in August after I found out my husband was cheating on me. At first I blamed the wheezing on stress, but I still have it, and it's now getting worse/happening more often.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.
