Allergies

I've never had an allergy to anything my entire life..........until this week when I used a vacuum cleaner I've been using for the past 6 years!
Anyone else have allergies suddenly thrust upon them from left field?
And is this related to my cfs of 4 years???
All responses gratefully accepted!

mine came on quite quickly following some EPD treatment, My view is I was probably allergic in a small way but the treatment magnified the allergies so that they became intolerable for a while. You probably need a vac with a HEPA filter, I would suspect dust allergy/intolerance.
