Thanks for posting your query.
You might be having any of the following problems-
If you have this type of problem recurrently and seasonally and have a family history for any allergy the it may be a manifestation of hyper reactive airways which is an allergic disease.
Another possibility is of viral infection of respiratory tract
or a mild pneumonia may also cause such symptoms.
You should get physical examination and investigations by a physician of your locality and follow the advise.
All the three conditions need consult with physician and are treatable.
