Feeling of constriction in lungs and chest on deep breathing after waking up. What could it be?

Hello, I recently moved to NYC and I noticed that most times when I wake up in the morning and try to breathe deeply my chest and lungs feel constricted for a couple of seconds and I can feel them stretching as I inhale deeply. I m fine for the rest of the s only isolated to when I first wake up. Do you have any idea what it could be? Thanks

Pulmonologist 's  Response
Thanks for your query
It may be an expression of early obstructive airway diseases like asthma or COPD
If you are a smoker then immediately stop smoking
Consult a pulmonologist and get yourself locally examined
It will be better if you go through a spirometry testing with bronchodialator reversibility
It may be a feature of GERD i.e. gastro-esophageal reflux diseases
You may have a trial of pantoprazole tablets 40 mg before nreakfast every day and look for improvement
Thank you.
