What you have experienced is consistent with your having acute bronchitis.  Cough is most common with this malady; wheezing less common but not rare.  That you would wheeze in this circumstance might be a sign of previously undiagnosed asthma.  If the wheezing or cough persist as you begin to feel better, you should see your doctor to see if you might have treatable asthma.

Good luck
