Question: strong urine smell


 Anonymous - Fri Mar 07, 2003 11:11 pm

Since May, I've been noticing my urine smells very strong, especially after not going for awhile or in the morning. I get sudden urges to urinate often. I was told I had trace amounts of protein in my urine about 2 years ago. It was never tested again. Could the symptoms be related or something serious? If not, how can a treat or improve the stong smell and sudden urges? Thank You, any advice would be great.

User avatar Dear Jennifer,

The symptoms that you are complaining of can be explained by a urinary tract infection.

You should do a urine analysis to make sure that you do not have a urinary tract infection and also check randomly for the presence of proteins.

Thank you very much for using our website https://doctorslounge.com
