Cloudy and smelly urine
About every 3rd or 4th time I urinate, it is cloudy and usually smells like the food I have eaten about 6 to 8 hours previously. This started about a year ago, and also, sometimes when I get the feeling I have to urinate, I get an intense burning sensation. This only happens about once a week. When the normal splashing occurs on the toilet, the droplets dry and look like thin plaster, plaster droplets. The cloudy urine and smelly urine don`t always occur at the same time. I am concerned about this and would appreciate any help. Thank you.
I would suggest that you see your doctor and have your urine checked to see why it is cloudy and smelly. There may be an infection or it may be related to the food you have eaten or medication that you have taken.
