Greetings doctor Sye Sue, at the age of 29 in this week, my urine is brown, although I have drunk a lot of water, but I don’t exchange colors. After that, my head hurts very much and feels nauseous and dizzy. Sometimes the chest pain on the right side and shortness of breath. Can you explain why all things apply thank you
Hello Sue, thank you for the question.
Changes in urine color indicate an abnormal process that occurs in the urinary tract. In addition, changes in the color of urine can also be associated with disorders of the liver. Abnormal processes in the urinary tract can be in the form of infections, stones, or kidney inflammation. Infection and urinary tract stones can occur in the kidneys, ureters (the connecting channel between the kidneys and the bladder), bladder, or urethra (the passage of urine from the bladder). Infection and stones can cause the surface in the walls of the urinary tract to become injured. This wound causes bleeding, causing urine to turn red, pink, or brown. Generally the change in urine color is accompanied by pain during urination, low back pain, lower abdominal pain, frequent urination, fever, or nausea.
In addition, another possibility that causes discoloration of urine is liver disorders. Liver infections, such as hepatitis A, can cause urine to turn brown like tea. The sign is accompanied by changes in skin color and eyes become yellowish. In addition, someone with hepatitis will experience fever, fatigue, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, no appetite, right stomach pain, sometimes accompanied by swelling in the right abdomen.
You should consult with a doctor. Your doctor may perform blood sample analysis, urine sample analysis, and if needed, your doctor will do an abdominal ultrasound. The treatment will be adjusted to the examination results. If the problem comes from the urinary tract, the doctor may give anti-inflammatory and antibiotics. If the problem comes from the liver, your doctor may give you an anti-virus.
In the meantime, you should still try to drink a lot, 2 L per day. Get plenty of rest, don't do strenuous activities first. Choose the type of food that is soft and does not make nausea. Make sure your food and cutlery is clean.
Thus the information that I can share, hopefully can be useful. Regards.
