Brief Answer:
Possibility of dust allergy is more likely.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your follow up question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
By your history and description, possibility of dust allergy is more likely.
Chest tightness is due to allergy induced bronchospasm.
This is usually self limiting.
So inhale fresh air. Avoid dust exposure in future. Wear face mask while doing cleaning stuff.
Take combination of antihistamine (levocetrizine or fexofenadine) and anti allergic (montelukast) once a day at night.
Don't worry, you will be alright with all these.
Hope I have solved your query. If you are not having further queries, then please close the conversation and rate my answer.
You can ask me directly on bit.ly/askdrkaushalbhavsar. Wish you good health. Thanks.
