Brief Answer: Gallstones. Detailed Answer: Hello! Thank you for the query. Dark brown urine is most likely caused by increased bilirubin in the urine. Abdominal pain and elevated bilirubin in the urine makes gallstones in the bile ducts most probable. You may also have pale or light stool, pain radiating to the back, nausea especially after fatty foods. Dark urine can also appear with diarrhea or when liquids intake is low. I suggest you to visit your doctor, have abdominal ultrasound, blood work, liver tests and urine analysis at first. Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions. Regards.

Brief Answer: . Detailed Answer: It is not a kidney stone for sure. Stones in gallbladder and bile ducts are causing your symptoms. Due to bile duct obstruction, bilirubin which is normally secreted to the intestine stays in the blood an appears in the urine. So if you havent change your liquids intake and diet, this should be ruled out and doctors attention is necessary. Regards.
