Brief Answer: It could be due to Premenopausal syndrome. Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for your query,I shall be happy if you can post me few more details to help me to make comments on your problems. 1) Are you diabetic? 2)Do yo still get your menstruation ? 3) Is it regular? Most likely these symptoms do occur in most of the females at peri-menopausal age and are due to hormonal imbalance . Please consult qualified Gynaecologist and get following investigations under his/herguidance. 1) Haemogram 2) Routine Urine tests and urine culture. 3) Blood sugar levels on empty stomach and 2 hours after lunch to rule out diabetes. 4)Serum hormonal levels (Oestrogen) 5) Serum calcium The foul smelling urine could be due to UTI or concentrated urine due to less water intake. In the mean while start taking high protein diet with vitamin supplements, Further treatment will depend upon results of these tests and final diagnosis, Hope I have answered your query Please feel free to ask if you have any more questions. I shall be happy to help you. Thanks and Regards. Dr.Patil.
