I drink alot of water but i dont urinate ...

Customer Question

I drink alot of water but i don't urinate frequently. This has been going on for years but now it seems worse. I drank 148 fluid ounces of water/powerade today and urinated once, which was yellow. I will drink fluids until I feel sick. I am very active during this period, too. I always urinate when I wake up and its dark yellow. If I drink beer I urinate frequently and clear. I had kidney stones when I was 16 and I'm now 21. Im worried it may be something serious. I don't have medical insurance, thats why I am asking you. What should I do?

Do you have excessive thirst or do you feel that you have to drink so much?

What other pre-exisiting conditions do you have?

Reply to Shyla's Post: Yes I do have acessive thirst. I work in the heat. That why at first I thought I was just dehydrated but came to realize its not that. And even at home in the air conditioning I have the same problem.
