    Does "hot" urine always mean a uti?

    I thought I was over mine but I just had some of the above. I'm going to take an AZO strip test in the morning but I was just wondering...
    Dx'd with PBS, PFD and uro genital atrophy in 4/07,
    Self dx - General Anxiety Disorder (all my life)
    Ulcerative colitis (one and only attack but a terrible one -almost lost my colon) 1999.
    .....................................................
    Meds, etc.
    Asacol - 10 per day
    Estrace 1 gram, 3 x per week (for atrophic urogenital area.) I'm post-menopausal.
    Had 6 weeks of PFD therapy summer of 2007.
    Alternative medicine I practice:
    Traditional Chinese Medicine herbs (daily)
    Acupuncture/Traditional Chinese Medicine (MD) for above conditions one time per mo.
    Yoga (daily)
    Exercise - daily - used to run but now I walk a few miles or row for 1/2 hr.
    Meditation and prayer.
    Self hypnosis for stress and anxiety.
    Tai Chi - also, not as often as I should - few times a week.
    Homeopathy (cantharsis 30x for burning.)

    No, I do not think it always means infection. I have had this as well.

    I hope not - I hope and pray I'm over this UTI I've had for the past month and I'm super paranoid I'm going to get another one.
    I have little paritcles in my urine, too. Like tiny white floaters - very filmy. I think I once read they were parts of the bladder lining that were being shed off.

    I have very warm urine sometimes. I used to try to figure out if there was a common time, but I couldn't. I have only had one UTI, so I would say no, hot urine isn't a sign.

    I too have the hot urine....I find it can be from not drinking enough water and my urine is stronger ((????))) this is a guess...? Then I sometimes think it is from a food i have eaten that has changed the ph of my urine....??? then I sometimes think it is because I have been sitting too long like driving long distances...etc.. ((???)) it is a total guessing game for me......

    Check the foods you have been eating.....I get burning urine from potassium in foods such as cereal. I'm keeping a food and symptom log and that's how I found out what was causing the burning. In the past year and a half I've had at least 6 or 7 UTI's and NEVER had burning urine with it. I could never understand that and the Dr. would just shug his shoulders when I'd tell him that.He never really believed I had a UTI until the culture came back and it was always e coli.
    I'm now trying to discover what causes a "warm flush" in my pelvic area but does not burn in the urine.I'm starting to think it's my Allegra or Fosamax.
