Asthma from carpet fibres - anyone have this problem?

I would like to know why I have developed asthma from what could only be the variable that has changed in my home and work life..... extremely excessive carpet fibres that i inhaled after my Hoover vacuum got clogged very quickly and forced me to go down on my hands and knees manually using my vacuum cleaner hose from room to room while creating more loose fibre while trying to get rid of it.  The carpet was replaced at no charge two weeks later, but I'm being treated for asthma and mentioned this to my pulminary doctor and he seems to think that the fibres may be an issue with my breathingbreathing.  I seem to have good days and not so good days.  I take asthmanex and a inhaler albutyrall(?)
