  • Urine color...

    Is it normal during a flare for your urine to be dark yellow..? I have been drinking water and even still my urine is very dark?

    I'd like to know too!

    When my symptoms first appeard 5 weeks ago my urine was very amber even though I was drinking a ton of water, it took a couple of days to finally get pale, but if I stopped drinking water for even an hr or two it would get dark again. This is part of the reason why I think I have stones, I think they clog up the kidney. At first I wanted it to be stones so it wouldn't be this dreaded IC but now I hear stories of plenty of people who have both!

          There are also some foods and drinks that can cause discoloration of urine. You might want to try keeping a food/drink diary to help find a cause for your dark urine.

          Stay safe
