Wheezing is a high-pitched whistling sound produced when one breathes through narrowed or obstructed respiratory airways. Breathing seems difficult, and sometimes there is a feeling of tightness in the chest. Wheezing may occur due to many reasons, and it may be an indication of any internal disorder related to heart or lungs. Asthma wheezing in particular is related to the accumulation of phlegm in the lungs, causing difficulty to breath. This may usually be aggravated due to reasons like dust, smoke or pollution.
