You can test every day. Though if you're sick you probably won't be up for water changes.
In this case if you have some Seachem Prime you can at least add a bit to detoxify ammonia and nitrates til you feel well.
Testing every day around the same time to monitor your parameters is the best thing to do until you start seeing your nitrITES dropping. Then you probably won't need to test ammonia if it's been zero for awhile. Always good to test your water if you suspect your fish are acting wonky. I had this happen to me tonight.
Saw my little baby goldfish acting funny so tested and while there was no ammonia there was some nitrITES so glad I decided to test.
