Your post caught my eye because something similar is happening with my Mom. She has been on many cardiac drugs for the last 40 years, and along with that has used NSAIDs for osteoarthritis for at least that amount of time.
She was dx'd with stage 4 kidney disease last year after her GFR dropped to around 24 (It's now 21 and will be checked again next month). Her nephrologist believes the NSAID usage was a large contributing factor in the dx.
If you doc has not explained your kidney function and the GFR, ask him/her or one of the NPs to sit down and explain it all.
There are things you can do now to improve , but if you need the NSAIDs to function, I'm not sure what the protocol would be.
You might try a doctor at Christiana Care in Wilmington. They have a pretty good reputation . Going back to DC or Johns Hopkins IMHO would be an option as well, or to one of the teaching hospitals in Philly.
I'm posting the link that I found very informative when researching my mom's disease. http://www.kidney.org/kidneydisease/ckd/knowGFR.cfm
