I have recently cut out soft drinks in an effort to live more healthy. After I did this my urine went dark yellow in the morning. As I drink water in the day it gets clear. Is this normal. No pain and I feel better than when I was on soft drinks.

Drinking 2 to 3 liters of fluid daily should keep you hydrated and your urine should get lighter in color indicating good hydration Water is a healthy fluid and your urine becoming lighter during the day is a good sign. ...Read more

Drinking : Drinking a lot will never cause dehydration. But if you drink a lot you can make your sodium level in your blood go low (hyponatremia) and that can cause nausea and vomiting. Some medications make hyponatremia more likely. The good general approach is to drink only if you are thirsty. The main reason to drink a lot is if you have kidney stones. Drinking a lot reduces the chance of stones coming back. There is no evidence that drinking a lot of water helps with weight control. The 8 glasses a day is nonsense and most current recommendations and science is do not do that. Drink only if and when you are thirsty. ...Read more

Healing takes a bit: cannot say in your particular case without an exam and... changes in pain with pressing or manipulating an area gives a good indication of its cause. If swallowing triggers a pain then something in the digestive tract is likely the cause. Reflux is quite common and often requires up to a few weeks for a PPI to heal it. ...Read more
