Can someone explain this?

Sometimes (as in every so often, sporadically) when I get up in the morning, I have trouble breathing. Like my throat and upper lungs are tighter than they should be. It sorta feels the shortness of breath asthmatic people describe - if I breathe in or out too fast or deeply, it makes me cough hard. But I've never had or been diagnosed with asthma. I have some allergies, but the only bad one is from cats (sneezing + itch eyes), and I don't own one. I do own a dog, but I've had the breathing issue at times before we had any pets at all. The feeling eventually goes away on its own, or if I eat something.

What could this be? Might it have something to do with the radiator coming on in the early hours, or would that simply be a dry-mouth thing? I'm not really sure what to call it in order to do a proper search for conditions, if it even is one. Halp?
