strange particles in urine..

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hiya ladies I know this is gonna sound strange

but I just gotta ask. I went to have a drug test

this past week for a job and I notice my urine

was a bit on the dark side which its normally

not,but what freaked me out a little is what was

floating in my urine. The best way to describe

what it look like: look like pieces of toilet paper

or a chunky piece of dandruff. How weird is

that? Also anyone that deals with hot flashes

is there any of you that only experience them

at bedtime? Things like this just keep my

anxiety out the roof that's one of my biggest

issues right now.

    I have heard this happening before, but after talking to the people concerned they were told by their GP's they were de-hydrated! I would say to you if you notice this and it continues to have a word with GP it sounds to me it wasn't normal for you to notice this.

      Thanks for reply Mumm I was reading somewhere that dehydration could be a cause. That does make some sense I do not drink enough especially water. So know I have started trying to drink more especially water and less caffeine.

    Hi Donna 

    if your urine is dark, you need to drink more 

    should be the colour of hay .. Light .. 

    I had something similar a few years ago, had a UTI and the doc said I had bits of flesh in my urine .. 

    Had a cystoscopy all was fine, then on my follow up, the specialist said I wasnt drinking enough, dark pee = dehydration ..

    must be the colour of hay .. 

    Good luck sweetie

    Yes Donna definitely it is probably a sign of dehydration or even an infection.  However if you have no other syymptoms you are prob ok.  Maybe take a urine sample to Docs just in case though.  Drink, drink, drink...water of course!!!LOLXXXX

    Hi Donna

    when your urine was checked for employment, did they say there was an infection, or was it simply to test for drugs..

    if not, you should see the doctor and he/she will check it, with a dip stick, or send to a lab if there are floaters.. ( maybe) 

    as for hot flushes, if they are at night while in bed, they may be night sweats, hot flushes are rushes of heat during day, or when your warm..

    i had night sweats in early peri, use to wake up sopping wet, legs slipping off each other with sweat.. These did pass.. Also had hot flushes too during day they passed also, but returned in post meno last year, in the height of the spanish summer heat, all calmed now, i am 20 months post meno ..

    you should get your urine checked incase there is a UTI that can also make you feel hot, and pee alot and general feeling unwell..

    good luck

      Hi Donna 

      i hope the doctor has given you some medication ..

      Urinary Tract Infections & puss info 

      Urinary tract infections, commonly abbreviated to “UTIs,” are one of the main causes.

      In these cases the pus isn’t actually in the urine so to speak, but it appears that way since both substances exit the body together.

      In most cases the pus builds up in the lining of the urethra, then blends with urine as it as it is forced out.

      This often causes a slight burning or stinging sensation, and the resulting expulsion tends to have a frothy, cloudy appearance along with a foul or sour smell.

      hope you feel better soon Donna
