Didn't eat aparagus, but urine still smells funky
If you ate asparagus your urine smells like burnt rubber because of the asparagus.
If you drank coffee your uring will smell funky, but typically different than the asparagus smell.
My concern is similar to others: I have not had asparagus in over a month but occasionally have that noteable odor when I use the bathroom. I'm wondering if it has something to do with the kidneys as I was diagnosed with renal insufficiency a couple months ago. I have an appointment with a nephrologist in a couple weeks and plan to ask the doctor at that time. Currently I have no back pain associated with it.
A couple other points I'd like to make: If your urine smells strongly of ammonia you are definitely not drinking enough water. EVERYONE needs to drink about 2 liters of non-caffeinated, non-alcoholic (this includes beer) liquids every day. So that means water, milk, caffeine-free soda, or juice. Everyone's kidney function decreases as we age, you can help your kidneys stay healthier longer by drinking enough water.

urine smells like burnt rubber
I drink beer, occasionally. I have also been eating asparagus, AND i started taking Green Tea Fat Burner pills and my urine has a very strong burnt rubber scent. This scent is only once in a while, so this all makes sense now. Thank you all.

Body temperature is 98.6. It will steam a little. Color, odor, and cloudiness is the main three categories.

The Orange Color and Odor Smells
Upon having a physical, I was found to have genital mutilation that included my cervix in March 2009 as my GYN showed me in a mirror what my cervix looked like. She had showed me before and it looks very different from the grey appearance to it use to have to the red and white appearance that it has. Before leaving my apartment to move, there was a purple bag in the dumpster. The only place that I had ever seen purple was the gloves on an ambulance, as I was being taken to a hospital Illinois where they doubled billed me for two separate hositals.

I've always had problems with urgency, especially upon wakening at night, due to having a genetically small bladder. As far as when my urine actual began to leak, it wasn't until I began to travel. and have leakage of urine smelling as burned rubber beginning in 2009 shortly after I read an article about people in Iran "burning tires," while at a truck stop. What people described as an infection never showed any infection and it didn't have the typical bacterial and viral symptoms suggesting it was anything but chemical, despite it appearing as a bladder infection without the U/A and C&S showing an actual infection that included the PAP Smear Vaginal Cultures. medication was given to me prophylactically, Metronidazole Vaginal Gel and Nitrofurotonin to begin to take. The Vaginal Gel was never needed and was squeezed out of it tube by an unknown person at nightas I slept and the Nitrofurotonin had two elements of a yellow and one element of orange cylinder shaped components of medication within a capsule. Somewhere along the way, after drinking coffee, I began to walk and my legs and feet felt very stiff and my back felt as if it was buring aching while I walked. I've also found that not long after while I traveled that I have a loud crunch in the back of my neck, the same area where my hair was being depleted to form separations as if I was going to put my hair in pig tails.

As far as the Urine, I'm wondering about two possibilities, genital mutilation set aside, the first being of whether there is are fissures due to sometimes it smelling as fecal matter in addition to sudden leaking urine mybe due to small puncture wounds or if it is the lining of the bladder that was affected by a chemical or toxin causing it to have blood in the urine such as the chemical that was onced use to place people in a deep sleep to reach their unconscious state of mind during sleep when trying to make "subliminalization" that occurred dueint the sleep state rise to the the conscious state of mind because of the "orange" color tags that are in the area when it begins. It's odd because my urine has a slight tan to light brown color to it, with an intermittent odor of ammonia, separate from the chemical ingestions of ammonia products including non "awesome" products that give an ammonia odor as seen during biochemical in 2004-2007 that have a clear residue to very brown build up of color on clothing. There was also one time brief bleeding of ruby color red blood from my anal area that has only happened twice on my life when I have no history of bleeding hemmorhoids.

Sometimes there is a very heavy white coating on my tongue that began to appear after someone stole a Respiridol script that was also given to me in case I needed it because I never medication in the hospital until forced to in Texas during chest pain symptoms in January 2005 when the staff felt my symptoms were due to anxiety and again in Virginia 2005 during medical symtpoms that accompanied alot of nocturia after I visited a church medical clinic. After all of that someone tred to make me appear as a prostitute when I never was and that appears to be what caused me to be targeted for genital mutilation due to beliefs of permiscuous behaviors whenI didn't really date to begin with due to being a rape victim in 2003 trying to force medications for a dangerous lifestyle when the Judge argued with the German physican that she couldn't hold me and treat me pertaining to a lifesyle.

2-2010 everything points to a procurement (to bring about) within the medical-psychiatric field a severe form of identity theft, including medical identity based on documentation of simple symptoms leading to irreversable illnessness. The same is seen in Character Assasignations when a group of people target dislike towards someone and distort the individuals personality causing forms of scandals in cases where procurement is used in a covert way as seen at social settings and also when misusing the legal and psychiatric fields to just verbally attack an individual, ultimately causing someones' death or unjustifed losses, including incarcerations.

What does all of this have to do with a burned rubber smell? If they were buring tires, then let's say it was Goodyear tires, then that shows "badder" had a meaning before I came along and was used "to show" as a man that I once seen called it, what "badder" meant in May 2009. It is is American Eagle, then the person who threatened me used the man that I once seen to have to show everyone what was meant from "bad" to "worse" while playing the past "reasons" or "reisens" to keep it current and that's the reason why I appear, even to me, to be in the past when I'm talking current isssues.

I haven't even gotten to what the actual cause may be as far as being targted suddenly due to the switching of listening and tracking devices found on individuals placed within holding centers, including jails and hospitals that are overseen by various military branches.

Several people from varoius military in 2009 verified the tracking devices were in subtle places on individuals for what reasons I'm not sure other than the clones of look alikes.

urine smells like tar
Glad to know all you hypochondriacs are here on the web--just kidding; you are all health conscious people. I am happy to learn about the asparagus and tar smelling urine connection. I have had my rotator cuff operation put off twice--once due to bronchitis and once due to a world class case of hives. And I was thinking, oh no not again. Looks like I am not wriggling out of it this time.

OK,
First looked this up before Christmas 2009...I just started noticing this issue before the Holidays last year. For the record, I was eating very very healthy all last year, lots of fresh fruit and veggie juices and salads and homemade soups. Fell off the wagon and started drinking a coke, a coffee and having chocolate and green tea again every now and then...what did I notice? The nasty smell in my urine. So alot of you are saying green tea, and I concur, not many people are saying cokes, but I think there is a connection there as well. In fact, my urine smells the worse after a coke. I'm thinking it has something to do with bone loss, but that is just a theory. I'm 46. I only started doing this last year, so mabye it is also age related or mabye related to how many toxins we are getting in our environment. Seems that there is more and more these days.

I am also relieved to know this burnt rubber smell (exactly the way I have described it) is caused by asparagus because I do eat alot of it. I also drink my morning coffee & smoke. I do not drink green or any other herbal tea.

I have the same odor. I don't drink beer, only wine and in the last month started having a couple of glasses of sangria in the evenings. I would normally drink burgandy or white. I wonder if this could cause the different odor?

Metallic smell, cloudy, but enough water!
I don't believe I have much in common with any of the posts except for the symptoms. Just recently, about a week or two ago, I've been noticing this metallic smell. I couldn't explain it til I saw this forum. I also get a slight pain just after I've finished and it's a little cloudy. I drink a lot of water, don't drink tea, and don't eat asparagus. So I don't know what could be going on. It's almost like I have a UTI, but I drank a lot of cranberry juice last week and usually that gets rid of it the first few days. Any answers yet?

Been noticing that strange urine, rubber, plasticy smell for months. Thought I should see what was out on the www about it before taking the time to see the Doctor. I don't drink alcohol, don't smoke, do drink lots of water, no sodas, no green tea, but have recently been buying the box of frozen asparagus from Schwan's. I recommend them, by the way. Learning that they are a kidney-bladder flusher of toxins, makes the smell well worth the benefit. The time line is perfect, so are the episodes coinciding along with eating them in my diet. Thanks Guys.

People, check for any toxins, chemicals in your environment or mouth (amalgam/composite) fillings.

I am betting this is the cause of strange urine signs..
