I quit smokng 2 weeks ago, and I now have the same problem. I am wheezing, and mostly feel it and hear it more so when I breath in. I think I may go my Dr. and let her listen...I hope this isn't anything to worry about. I thought quitting smoking was supposed to be good for your lungs!
That's normal. Your body is detoxing itself, the longer you smoked, the longer it takes to heal. It takes about ten years for your lungs to really recover from smoking more than 5 years, not casual smoking either, every day smoking.
