(Because this is the first person I have found who describes exactly what I feel, although they did back in 2006)

I have been having the same problem every morning for the last few weeks. I get up in the morning, and the first deep breath I take is followed by a wheezing up the center of my chest (no sound, though). It happens once and that is it. I have been very worried about it.
The air in our house is pretty dry, and I have been sneezing like crazy (maybe allergies?).
I have been trying to describe my symptoms to my family, and nobody else can relate.
Is there any other possibilities for this strange breathing?
For the last few years, and occasionally, with no real repetition, I wake up some mornings (usually on my back) and the first breath, or two (the deeper I breathe the more the wheeze) my lungs wheeze. It's almost as if I lowered my breathing so much during the night my lungs compressed themselves, and then when I wake up, they struggle to re-inflate, but after that deep breath or two I'm perfectly fine. I've asked my doctor and she said simply allergies or something she's sure. But I've tried allergy medication and it hasn't helped. It's hard to show someone this problem because it's random and only when I wake up, but sometimes the soreness of expanding my lungs is painful. :-/
Does anyone have any advice?
