Brief Answer: Wheezing was a sign of pneumonia... Detailed Answer: Hi, I have read your medical history and understood your concerns. To my opinion, you had first a common viral infection which has been complicated with pneumonia. The wheezing symptom you experienced was a typical sign for pneumonia. A further physical examination and chest X-ray was advised to be taken at that time. Wish fast recovery now! Dr.Alba
