What is this in my urine?

Posted by tongc333 @tongc333, Jul 24 11:14am

So for 4 years I have seen 4 different urologists and suffered with an unceasing feeling coming from my urethra that I have to urinate. I now have pelvic floor dysfunction. All my urine tests have came back negative and I have probably had around 20. With this said I have a bad smell smell to my urine and particles/bubbles(these don't go away) present that were not there prior to my health condition. I attached a picture. Does anyone have any idea what this is?

Hi @tongc333 and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Members are here to lend support and share their own experiences, but not to offer medical advice or a diagnosis. However, I can understand your reaching out to hear from others who may have had similar symptoms, since even the specialists appear to be stumped.

Would you mind telling us your age and sex? What possible causes did the urologists investigate or rule out? What contributed to the pelvic floor dysfunction?

I am a 31 year old male. I have had 2 bladder scopes that revealed no abnormalities. The pelvic floor dysfunction is a total mystery and slowly developed from the start of the chronic urination until it became severe. The only abnormalities on my pelvic scans were seminal vesicle cysts and red bone marrow reconversion. No doctors gave this any serious thought and dismissed both of them as red herrings. So basically I have significant side effects with zero clue of why.

When I was trying a keto diet I experienced passing urine that smelled pretty bad. Have you changed your diet recently or before the symptoms started?
