Nitrites but no UTI

Posted , 5 users are following.

I am a 32 year old woman. I have noticed for the last 3 months my urine has been smelly in the morning and thought nothing of it. Then the stinging began, so I drank lots of water which fixed the problem however, my first morning urine is still smelly and always has Nitrites in it! The doctor has lab tested my urine which has no infection, but still positive nitrite. The doctor says she has never seen this before and wants me to take a course of antibiotics and then send my urine off for further tests if I am still getting the nitrites. I am starting to worry something is wrong with my kidneys 😕. Any ideas anyone?
