Acidosis?

I have been expereincing acidosis for a year and a half and so far my doctors don't have a clue why. My symptoms are:
Bad Breath (strong like ammonia)
frequent urination with the same smell
low CO2 levels
anion gap at 11
really bad headaches
Did I mention bad breath
lower back pain
blood in my urine (I can't see it but each urinalysis shows it)

I think I have chronic renal failure but my BUN and creatinine levels come back low. My doctors think it renal tubular acidosis. I started taking pills to lower my body PH but so far I don't feel better. I don't know what's wrong with me but its ruined my life and my faith in doctors has decreased as well.
