Brief Answer:
Do you smoke?

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Wheezing especially at night is seen commonly with bronchitis (inflammation of airways).
Smokers are more prone for bronchitis and atrial fibrillation (AF).
So please let me know
1. Do you smoke?
2. Do you have rapid heart beats?
Bronchitis needs inhaled bronchodilators (levosalbutamol or formoterol) to stop wheezing.
All these are prescribed drugs so you may consult your doctor.
Please reply me answers of above asked questions, so that I can guide you better.
I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
