What causes dark colored urine and swelling in the ankles and feet?

Hi, can I answer your health question? Please type your question here... I have a swollen knee that I thought was from excessive work around the house. It’s now spread to my ankle and foot. And today my opposite hand has 2 swollen fingers. I can barely walk and need help getting out of bed to go to the washroom. I noticed my urine is also quite dark

What does it mean if my urine is brown to dark yellow? My feet are as cold as ice, but the rest of my body feels like it s burning up. I am getting massive headaches, and I am having periods of black outs lasting from 10 to 30 minutes. My urine has a foul odor, and it is becoming increasingly painful to urinate. I have stage 3 kidney disease, post liver transplant. I was put on Furosemide 20mg, then told i was in renal failure because of the medication. Suddenly the doctor backpacks and says my kidneys are fine despite the symptoms first listed. What is your opinion?
