Wheezing is labored, forced breathing that often occurs from exercise or exhaustion. If you wheeze while trying to carry out everyday tasks, you may have underlying conditions like COPD or obesity that make breathing harder. Seek immediate care if you're suddenly wheezing and aren't sure why, especially if accompanied by chest pains, or fever.
Wheezing is a whistling sound that occurs when you breathe, and it can be a symptom of various underlying conditions. Some of the most common causes of wheezing include asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), bronchitis, pneumonia, and respiratory infections.
