What can extremely dark, very strong almost acid like smelling urine indicate? Have had a puffy belly and lower stomach pains. Tried lots water.

In brief: See doctor

If you don't think that your urine is just very concentrated because you are dehydrated (doesn't sound like it since you tried drinking a lot of water), i would be concerned that the color could be do to hemolysis (destruction) of your red blood cells.
You can also get an enlarged spleen (puffy belly?) when this happens. Go to a doctor and get your urine checked.
