Dark orange urine, cramping and bloating?

I have had to drink tons of water lately or my urine gets really dark orange in color! I have also been cramping as if my period is going to come on but i've been like this for 6 days and my period isn't due until monday! I'm also crazy bloated. Any ideas? I'm not on any meds or supplements that could change my urine color either btw

  • It's time to see a doctor because it's been six days and you're also cramping. Can you think of anything you're eating that has any orange color in it? If not there's always the possibility that it's some blood in your urine.

  • You could have a kidney or bladder infection, you need to see the doctor and pronto!

  • I read online that it's just a sign of dehydration...

  • Yeah, blood in urine is red, pink or cola-colored...mine is orange. It's dehydration

  • Don't tell yourself it's dehydration. I had amber (orangey) colored urine when I had a kidney stone and I was NOT dehydrated.

  • Well then don't call the doctor, I mean why did you even ask? If you have cramping and have been drinking lots of water, there is something wrong with your kidneys being able to filter properly.
