1. I don't think it's been shown to cause a problem


There's evidence that ibuprofen changes kidney function, and theories that these changes could cause problems, but studies on real populations haven't shown this IIRC, and as your research indicates. You might want to show the concensus statement to your doc, those tend to carry weight.

But chronic ibuprofen use does seem to increase the incidence of cardiovascular problems. You and your doc might want to consider naproxen, another NSAID, that's not as powerful but seems to not have cardiovascular complications in moderate doses.
