Dark, smelly urine
I started experiencing a strong odor in my urine early January. it has developed into a dark burnt orange color and extreme odor now. Also I have no energy and experiencing dizziness/light headed as well. I am a 32 yr old female who had a hysterycrtomy 15 months ago from cervical cancer. My question is what could be going on and what level should I be concerned?
It appears as though you are having a chronic urinary tract infection, for which you should immediately see your physician for work up and proper treatment.
