In brief: High creatinine

You need to see a nephrologist to find out what is causing your elevated creatinine (c) level.
The c level is dependent on age, sex, race and weight. Causes of an elevated creatinine are obstruction of the outflow of urine, kidney and drugs that cause renal problems. Go to a nephro, have a 24 hour urine collection for c clearance and protein, have a renal ultrasound and blood work to get a plan.

In brief: See a kidney doctor.

An elevated creatinine level suggests kidney injury but without knowing the cause of injury or if this is an acute or chronic condition, i can't offer specific advice.
A nephrologist who can take your history and examine you would be able to offer you the best recommendations tailored to your problem. In the meantime avoid nsaids which could further impair your kidney function. Good luck!
