  • Once a week pale amber colored urine?

    Just when I thought I had been dragged through the last tiniest knothole of a 6 month long flare - about every 5 days or so - I have an incident of pale amber colored urine

    Anyone else ever have this?

    It seems to happen in the AM but not, necessarily the first or second time after waking up.

    Thanks for any input.

    You need to ask your uro, maybe the internet may have something on that. It could be something your eating or drinking thats causing that color?

      I agree with Linda --- you need to ask your uro.

        Are you drinking enough water? When I'm having a hard time with getting enough water, my urine turns dark. It is kind of odd that it only happens once a week or so, though. I'd check with my doc.

        Lexapro-20 mg
        Aciphex
        Ambien-as needed
        Percocet-7.5 up to 3 per day as needed
        Valium-10 mg x2 per day
        Phenergan-1 at night

        Currents treatments that help somewhat:
        Heating pad
        Hot baths
        Ice
        Being VERY still while lying down with legs elevated

          Definitely ask your uro - it could be anything from something you're eating, to blood in the urine, to a metabolic issue, and your uro is the only one who can help you figure that one out. Definitely keep a food, pain, and voiding diary though - you might be able to link something that you're doing to this new development.
