EDTA solution becomes slurry

Are you talking about "slurry" or whitish ppt?  Slurry is quite serious, and you
may have a bad batch of EDTA. However, if you are unable to dissolve the EDTA at
0.5M with the NaOH you have, it may be the NaOH it self.  Make a fresh solution.
 BTW, why use 10N?  If you are making a lot, I would suggest use pellets instead
(calculate the amt you may need and use slightly less than that.
