Kidney insufficiency: This is acute renal insufficiency. Without knowing more information it is hard to know the cause. In any event, this may be reversible. Avoid anti-inflammatory medications (ibuprofen, Naprosyn, Aleve, (naproxen) etc) and follow up with your doctor. You may need to see a kidney specialist.
