I have had really foul smelling urine for about 5 months. Best described as like boiled smoked bacon???? I had no other symtoms, no discomfort etc. I eventually rang and spoke to a very laid back GP, easy to talk to. She said try fresh lemon juice and leave a specimen for testing. The lemon juice did not help but, even without any symptoms i apparently have an infection of some kind. I was given Nitrofurantoin 50mg four times a day 36 hours later the smell was almost gone. Three days later and it has cleared completely. Drink plenty of water too and leave another sample for testing two or three days after you finish the tablets..just to be sure whatever caused it has beed completely removed. Good luck!!! Barbara:)
