Wheeze on breath in?

You might remember that I posted a while ago because I have been having tight chest and morning coughing and slight whistle on breathing out, which I think is linked to hayfever.

I have had a dry barking cough for a couple of hours every morning, but this morning started to get a rattling wheeze on breathing in which was rather alarming but went away after about 10mins. My question is is wheezing on a breath in a symptom of asthma, as I always thought it was on breath out? Also do others get a harsh rattling wheeze or a whistle?

If you have any concerns about the wheeze ur better seeing ur gp. Unfortunately No one can say what it is unless they examine you


Not really concerned about it as such as it stopped so quickly and I felt ok at the time. Was just curious about others' experiences really. Obviously if it keeps happening or I get other symptoms will go to doctors.


It was due to my wheezing when I breathed in that I went to my doctor. After a chest x-ray, which came back clear, he put me on the asthma register. The wheeze seems to go after I take my Ventolin but I'm still getting it.
