Respiratory acidosis is a condition where there is arterial blood ph less than 7.35 and pCO2 more than 40 mmHg.  Usually occurs in chronic respiratory diseases and it is a emegenccy condition and require ICU admission. I don't think you have this. Your symptoms suggest a lung disease and consult chest specialist.
