In brief: Go to primary care
With your history i would want to make sure that they did urine tests to make sure that there is no protein in your urine.
A urinalysis is the initial test done in most cases. An er is often not the best place to get this evaluated and you may be better off seeing a primary care physician who will decide if you need further referrals. Would also consider getting thyroid checked.
