UTI? Or unrelated?: These may be unrelated, but possible urinary tract infection with kidney involvement (pyelonephritis). Strong urine odor usually results from changes in diet and/or reduced fluid intake (concentrated urine smells strong). But "side pain" and cloudy urine could be due to UTI. This could be serious: see a doctor soon -- if painful or urgent urination, or if any fever, do it immediately. Good luck!
