What color is your urine? Are you drinking enough water? Your urine should be colorless or at most a very pale straw color if you are properly hydrated. You might have an infections somewhere along your renal tract, even though there is no burning. The back ache might be a sign of it. So maybe good idea to see your GP after all.

Silly question - you haven't by chance been eating asparagus regularly. That causes a strong odor in urine. Also, are you on a low carb diet? that can also cause urine odor.
