View Full Version : TMI ... what would make urine smell bleach-y?

I have interstitial cystitis but don't have symptoms anymore. It was caused by my chronic panic disorder and when I got on the right dose of medication for the panic, the IC symptoms went away (IC patients frequently have panic disorder). So, I don't think it's from IC, especially since that's not one of the symptoms from IC anyway. This has happened to me a few times where for about a week or two, my urine smells like watered down bleach or chlorine (haven't gone in the pool yet, so it's not that). I *really* don't want to go to a urologist because I have seen way too many of them in my lifetime and I just don't want to go there. Anybody else experience this or know what it could be from?
