Here are some...: One thing for sure is you, most likely, okay since you have been free of urinary / genital symptoms. Clinically, what you observed and described could represent the presence of amorphous crystals in alkaline urine which refects what you consumed or the possibility of contamination in urine collection. So, live on as the first choice or seek evaluation/counseling as suggested if insisting or obsess
