Anyone else experience similar chronic illness symptoms?

Note: I am the patient. Describing the symptoms is pretty difficult task but I will try to do my best. The patient has not felt normal since sometime in October of 2013. The best way to describe it is a feeling as if patient is about to get sick. That feeling as if a sickness is coming on but never really comes on. This feeling is often strongest at night and continues throughout the day and will be gone by night. This toxic/sick feeling that radiates throughout the body seems to come and go at times.

Can someone recommend some reliable web sites where I can check reviews for Doctor's in my Area (NJ)?

Can someone recommend some reliable web sites where I can check reviews for Doctor's in my Area (NJ)? I know there are a ton of sites but I don’t know which ones are reliable I live in NJ Also somebody recommended yelp in one of the other posts here but a quick search there did not reveal any result with more than 1 review for my area. Also, there were only few practices with reviews. Basically I just want to find out a little bit more about the doctor before I visit him / her. Any suggestions?
