Labored Breathing/ Whistling exhale

I for a while have had some weird breathing problem. It first started at night time where i would wake up and it felt like my neck didnt want to let me breathe easily. This was random at the time. Later on to present i have this problem of just plain uncomfortable breathing. Not so much the feeling i need to take a deep breath but i feeling that its harder to breath (I dont feel like if i had just sprinted a mile) Also, i get a frequent whistling sound exhaling and its wosrt in mornings and after getting out of the shower. Also if i hunch over it goes away but if i stand up and straighten my neck up its there.

I jave had lung function test in past 6 months and astma is ruled out. Inhaler doesnt work either. Allergy otc meds dont do anything. Anxiety meds help distract and make the breathing a little more tolerable but whistling and difficulty is still there. Cardiac test have been fine

Below is a uploaded recording of the whistling while my breathing is more labored than usual. Might have to turn up phone cause my mic didnt record very loudly. I played this for my pcp and said it wasnt stridor or wheezing and blamed it on anxiety and has been loading me up on anti depressants

Any ideas would help cause its always there and becomes debilitating at times

Thanks
