Forced cough sounds dry while lying on left side, wheezing while lying on right?

For years I have noticed that while I force myself to cough while lying on my left side, it's a normal forced dry cough, but when I try to do that while lying on my right side, it sounds all wheezy and chesty. I have had 1 mild asthma attack in the middle of the night when I was like 10 years old, and my parents didn't even take me to the ER. I haven't had anymore since then (I'm 20 now) and haven't been on any asthma medication for years now. What could be causing the drastic difference in how my coughs sound while lying on my left and right side?

Hello and hope you are doing well.

The wheezing could be due to Asthma. Have yourself evaluated for the same. This can be detected by a spirometry test.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
