    Hi Mystic,

    Hope it helps.

    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.
