Symptom: Urine colour change
I'm a 19 year-old male college student. I go to the gym five to seven days a week. I stay VERY hydrated with water, and I only drink water and skim milk. I drink an average of at least 100 oz of water everyday. I do not eat junk food, greasy foods, sugary foods, etc. I do not drink alcohol, and I do not smoke. I average six to eight hours of sleep a night.
The symptom began two days ago. When I pee it is initially the regular yellow colour. Then, there comes a discolouration of a darker brown/red. The viscosity of the urine is still about the same. I wasn't sure if this is blood or some other problem. Would blood in urine make it much thicker? Also, it is not every time that I urinate that the urine is an irregular colour; there have been several regular yellow coloured bathroom visits; and I have been urinating the same frequency that I always have. I do not feel any abdominal pains, nausea, and, in fact, I feel perfectly fine except for being worried about this. My stool has also been of normal colour and frequency.
Should I go to a physician? Are urine tests pricey? Being in college doesn't help my budget. Thank you for your time.
