My internet service provider disconnected my internet one day last week so I called to find out why and they said I was running 10 IP numbers at the same time. I did not have 10 routers or a switch box hooked up. Wouldn't that slow down my internet speed considerably? And is it possible for that to happen? Thanks in advance for your feedback.

Yes! it is possible to happen.
Though we can assign multiple IP addresses to a single computer, it is not recommended unless there are multiple network interface cards or NICs installed in it. It will cause bottlenecks i.e it will degrade network performance.
You can check IP addresses of your computer through the following:
Open the command prompt.
Enter the command “ipconfig” for Mac or “ifconfig” on Linux.
Next, input the command “arp -a”.
Optional: Input the command “ping -t”.
