or had any tests.

I would strongly recommend that you should have urine and blood tests.

Customer:

no dr im fine and im not taking anything at all

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I would like that a urine infection should be ruled out and additionally people who urinate frequently at night (nocturia) should have their blood urea and creatinine tested among a blood glucose level.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So the main thing that you should know here is that you need a complete blood work up as well as urine test to rule out/rule in all the major possibilities.
