Please, see a doctor.  I too, believe you're dehydrated, hence the dark urine.  Urine also tends to smell, the more concentrated it is.  Sometimes, what you eat, can also cause your urine to smell.  If you've been having problems with this since you were young, you need the expertise of a urologist.  Good luck, and feel better, soon

I agree... Definitely sounds like a lack of water. The sign of a healthy, well-hydrated person is light, clear, and odorless urine! Kidney Stone isn't necessarily the cause, though, like Harpo said get to a doc if you think that might be the case. Try drinking more water for even just a day or so, and you should see a noticeable difference... If not, it may be time for an exam!

Thanks for your advice....but I have to let you know it would be impossible for me to be dehydrated, because all I do is drink water and the occasional sweet tea. I don't drink pop or cool-aids at all..not even coffee. I have since December of last year. So do you see my problem? I am pretty sure the coloring is from the vitamins I take but the smell is still puzzling me!

well, it could be due to the things you eat or the tea you drink... sounds like you have a pretty healthy diet... vitamins could definitely cause coloring... and if its those yucky orange multi-vitamins, they may be causing the smell as well... if you're concerned, see your doctor :)

You need to visit a doctor first of all but if you don't want to I will suggest you drink a lots of water, 64 oz per day, 8 tall glasses of water per day.
You said you don't have and infection but that you had suffer from kidney problems, you might need an antibiotic or such but basically drink plenty of water specially in the morning and I know this will help you, when you have and odor or dark yellow urine means that you need a LOT OF WATER.
