Will My High Co2 Level Lead To Respiratory Failure?

0 votes
I have been suffering from asthma right from my infant stage. Now that I’m 26, I feel the symptoms have increased. Sometimes, I end up so breathless; almost unable to get air in or out of my lungs and dizziness has become a common occurrence with me. I am currently on Albuterol and Flovent.
What’s worrying me now is that my CO2 level is up to 32(normal range bet 22-32). Three months ago, it was only 24.5.What do these high levels indicate? Am I going in for respiratory failure?
