    Well I drink alot of water so I usually urinate alot at night because I drink more of the water during at night. As for colour I haven't noticed any serious change in colour but I do have these kind of vibration feelings, sorry I couldn't get the right word for it at my back sometimes especially at nights or when I wake up. sometimes I get these quivering feeling like when one has a fever but I don't have a temperature

    It would be nice to get checked out preferably by a nephrologist , one who checks out d kidney function. .. ur loads of drinking water is related to how much u urinate, hence d need to replace. ...and not d other way round. puffy or swollen face or legs, u need to worry. ..either way, get checked to excuse a kidney or heart issue.... regular blood pressure checks too...plus time to rail off the smoke dear. good luck
