Protein in urine means there is problem in the kidneys, as the kidneys (when the filter the blood) do not leak proteins from blood in to the urine. They remove only wastes and water.

In your case the likely reason is chronic use of analgesics like diclofenac. but other reasons should also be investigated like glomerulonephritis.

You should have this evaluated by a Nephrologist (kidney physician) to have further evaluation done in terms of clinical exam and tests. There are variety of tests to find out the exact cause for the injury to kidneys, and once a specific underlying cause is found, a specific treatment plan can be chalked out.
