This is kinda strange but it seems whenever I'm having a flare, or about to have one, my urine changes it odor. I takes on a sort of sour smell. Has anyone else experienced this? Does anyone have an idea of what it could be. It's not the diabetic sweet smell, I have a diabetic daughter so I know what that smells like.

Does your lupus flares also coincide with infections? This may contribute to the sour smell of your urine. Also, due to medications, the bacteria may be out of balance and toxins may build up. This, too, could account for the sour smell of your urine.

Ask your doctor about this to see what he/she may think. Let us know what you find out and how you are doing.

Peace and Blessings
