Fishy smell in urine, no discharge, pain. Taking omega fish oil, stopped. Due to acid reflux?

i am trying to find out if there is a connection between acid reflux and foul urine smell. i see some answers but none are definitive. even after washing the odor is there on the towel, like an old urine odor and then the fishy smell comes back. no discharge , no pain, i saw the comment about omega fish oil, will stop that. how long before that leaves the system.

There is no connection with acid reflux and foul smell in the urine. But some times the urine smell may be different depending on the type of diet you are taking. You should drink plenty of water. Get a urine test done to rule out any infection. Maintaining personal hygiene is equally important.
