Do a urine routine to confirm it is not blood.
Generally it will settle by itself, as of now drink plenty of water.

My son is 12 and Is urinating orange urine (just started), however, he doesnt have the urge to urinate he makes him self... even after drinking 3 bottles of water... his step mother took a strip uranaylis today and said his protein levels were at 30. One other thing hes having trouble telling the difference between colors right now and has never been diagnosed with color blindness... He has had surgery to his left eye in 2005 for cataracts (congenital). Not sure if this means anything at all but he had an appendectomy oct, 2011 and was recently diagnose with 10% urethal stenosis. Also, He has been Having frequent headaches that last only a few minutes But cause him to cry from the pain then vanquish as fast as they started.

Hi..I m 29 years old and since last night experiencing sharp pricking pain when urinating, no swelling or change in color of urine observed. Same pain exists if I press Penns head gently. Is it due to kidney stone or a rupture internally? Pls advise. I m already making a conscious effort to consume close to 5litre water, anything else I could do?
