Question: Why is my urine never yellow anymore?

 turtlesti - Sat Mar 05, 2005 6:55 pm


I have been experiencing a weird attack on my body for about 6 months now. It seems to be nervous system related, as I get much tingling, burning, numbness, etc all over the place...among other problems like fatigue, eye troubles, frequent urinating...and even more. Anyways, 3 MRI's have shown nothing, I seem to be otherwise fine. I am sorta feeling better I guess, it seems to be terribly slow progress. Anyways, my urine has been all over the place the whole time but most recently, last 2 months, it has been hardly yellow at all, if not at all. Any thoughts on what could be going on to cause this? Am I not properly flushing something like waste from my blood? As for my liquid consumption, maybe slightly more than when I was healthy 7 months ago, can't see how that would be it. My frequency isn't as bad as it used to be at the beginning, maybe 3-4 times a day now. Thanks for your help.

User avatar Hi Matt,
Highly diluted urine may have numerous causes. Has you liquid/fluid consumption increased significantly? Large amounts of fluid will make the urine very pale in color. You mentioned that you have had MRI's. My apologies for not asking this previously but of what part of the body was this perfomed?

My water consumption is hardly more than when I was healthy 7 months ago. Although my urine frequency, the amount of urine for an entire day is only, I would guess, a bit more than when I was healthy. MRI, 2 spine(one with contrast), 1 Brain. Thanks
