I was very stupid and took 10 g (5 x 2g slow release) 10,000 mg of Vitamin C for 17 days in a row. I took other supplements but nothing OTT like the vitamin C (all within recommended dose) . I googled oxalate nephropathy. Was taking meloxicam 15 g NSAID for 12 days prior to 14th April. Stopped taking the vitamin C at beginning of April. Have been feeling slightly nauseous for the last 3 weeks with low appetite. On 14 April I checked into A/E: Creatinine 1.06 and GFR 72 mg/dl, potassium 4.04 sodium 133 mmol/l . Doc said all is good, maybe gastritis from all the stuff. Now at end of April, the nausea is still there but not getting worse. By the way I had a severe case of 3 months of anxiety disorder 3 years ago. Severe nausea, much worse than now. Last week I went to another doc he did urine analysis dipstick and said all is OK - no protein or blood. I also do dipstick weewee daily myself and no protein. Can I relax now?. I heard oxalate nephropathy can take so time to kick in, but a month has now passed. No itching or swelling of limbs, no back ache. Can I stop panicking. Thanks in advance
