I have lots of bubbles (foamy) when I urinate. Some lower back pain. The bubbles began to disappear quickly. It looks and sounds like a can of soda emptied into the toilet. I have been feeling more fatigued, but not sure if this Is associated.

Brief Answer: Get your urine tested.... Detailed Answer: Hi, Frothing (foaming) urine is seen when there is protein in urine. Normally proteins are filtered out by kidneys. This is one of the important function of kidney. A failing kidney or a defect in the filteration mechanism leads to protein loss. One may find frothy urine when there is protein content in the urine. Physically some amount of foaming can occur when any liquid is poured forcefully. Not considering these physical parameters, I suspect presence of proteins in the urine to be causing the foamy appearance. I would order for a urine routine and renal function test to look for proteins and verify renal function. Back pain may be related. Ultrasound scan can help us identify the relation. I would urge you to visit your local physician to stream line the aforementioned set of tests. Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications. Regards
