In brief: May be none

Other possibilities include seeing matter in urine versus in advanced disease, foamy urine and leg swelling may take place.
Of course in the context of taking non steroidal analgesics (arthritis meds). This is a rare condition. There used to be an old drug called phenacetin that was calssically associated with this problem when abused but this drug is not available now.

In brief: See below

Analgesic nephropathy involves damage to one or both kidneys caused by overexposure to mixtures of medications, especially over-the-counter pain remedies (analgesics).
There may be no symptoms. Symptoms of chronic kidney disease are often present over time and may include: •weakness •fatigue •increased urinary frequency or urgency •blood in the urineflank pain or back pain •decreased urine.
