Foul and strong smelling urine, dark, cloudy...what is it?

At first I thought I was just dehydrated, but I've been making sure I drink plenty of water and my urine is still like this. It smells absolutely horrible and it is very dark and cloudy. I don't know what it is. Been like this for a couple weeks at least. No other symptoms (no burning, itching, etc). Any ideas?

  • Yeast or urine infection even w/o burning and/or itching could still be possible. Get it checked.

  • At first it sounded like maybe a urinary tract infection. Do you feel the need to urinate often? If not that then maybe a yeast infection, either way you should see the Dr.

  • Sounds like you need to go to the doctor and you're probably not drinking enough water.

  • Are you taking any new medication, anything,,,diet pills even? How bout vitamins, have you changed or added vitamins to your diet? If the answer is no to both, then you need to go see a doctor to see whats going on. Sometimes you can have infections without burning and itching. My dd used to have UTI's all the time, without any symptoms except for foul and cloudy urine

  • Well, I haven't added any new meds or vitamins or anything like that. I know I'm drinking plenty of water. I guess I will be making a doctor's appointment. Thanks everyone!

  • It sounds like you need a urinalysis. It could be a myriad of things. A urine dipstick and possibly a culture and sensitivity test will give you a better idea of what is going on.
