I hope: i hope that you didn't take all 10 at once! You should only take 1 every 12 hrs - taking it more frequently increases your risk of kidney damage and gastritis! Both are very serious. If you are taking it properly, you should notice a decrease in inflammation/pain.

Possible OD issues: The maximum dosage range for Naprosyn is 500 mg 3x/day/ you ingested 3,500 mg: severe enough to cause kidney issues and gastric ulceration. I suggest immediate medical evaluation.
