    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    If it is only for a few days, it should not cause urinary problems. But if you restrict your fluid intake over a long period of time, it can lead to dehydration and it can make your urine too concentrated, which can cause an infection.

    i have a odd problem. I have clear and frequent urination with an inflamed feeling. Is there anything i can take to put it under control. I have been prescibed "Pyridium Plus" but even that does not help when my urine is clear and frequent.
