I've been coughing for about a week and I just started wheezing when I breath. I can't get a full breath. Could it be something more serious?

I have an inhaler that I had to use to catch my breath after a coughing fit. I've also taken some robutussin cough and congestion.
Hello, Welcome to Just Answer. Which inhaler are you using? Any test taken? Is there any previous disease? When did you consult doctor last? Thank you.

Wheezing suggests there is constriction of bronchi or air passages.
There can be infection in bronchi or lungs.
You may need tests like blood counts, chest X ray etc.
Then doctor can adjust your medicine.
When the wheezing has just started it suggests that you need an urgent examination.
It can get worse over time without treatment
