Dear friend, welcome and thanks for entrusting your query here at Healthcaremagic!
I am Dr. Prasad Akole (Critical Care Expert- and am glad to address to your query here.

Wheezing sound in inhalation is called a stridor and is not seen in asthma, where there is expiratory wheezing.

Stridor is usually due to some obstruction in the airway during inhalation.
Do you get any fever, itching, allergy?
I would advise an ENT check up to look for any pathology in the airways and at the larynx.
Infective cause will usually have fever, while webs, growths, narrowings are afebrile.

I hope to have answered your query satisfactorily. I would be glad to answer any further queries. Take care and please keep me informed of your progress at
Good Luck!
