Gurgling Feeling

I had bronchitis about 2 years ago which has left me with the following symtoms (symptoms):
A gurgling sentation when taking a deep breath in when lying down on my back for awhile.It is worse at night and in the morning.The sensation isnt thro my chest but my back.When i get up i also feel the same sensation,but after a few breaths it goes away once i move around abit.I now sleep on my side as i feel uncomfortable,like a heavy weight is on my chest,and i cant get enough air in..that may be stress.I have had so many xrays of my chest & lungs and they are normal....any ideas????
