In brief: No, but

Consider getting an evaluation.
Symptoms are concerning for rhinitis (inflammation in the nose or sinus) and maybe even asthma or narrowing or the wind pipe due to irritation or allergy. New symptoms from working in a basement could be due to animal dander, insect sensitivity, mold, irritants, rodent sensitivity or other irritants. Could also be a virus that will resolve in short time.
