What are symptoms of wheezing?

ANSWER

Wheezing often gives a musical or whistling sound to your breathing. It can make it hard to breathe, especially to blow air out. Your chest also might feel tight. You can hear wheezing more loudly if you plug your ears and exhale quickly, or by using a stethoscope to listen to breathing over the lungs.
