Anyone have a good doctor suggestion in central NJ area?
Unsure if I am trusting my doctor right now. I've had some pretty bad symptoms after being diagnosed with Hep B (and about a month before I knew about it). Mainly:

-Weakness (finally hitting up the gym after 6 months though)
-Loss of Weight/Meat on my bones especially arms and legs
-Shakeyness probably due to the weakness
-Reduced appetite (has come back somewhat)
-Some weird faint like feeling, almost like a panic attack where I feel like I'm going to black out
-Having issues with heights or elevated areas (never had them before)

When I told him all of this, he told me it was "stress" doing this to me. He is a GI doctor. Right now, he's just been watching me since my Hep B diagnosis was only found in August. When I asked him should I be concerned about liver cirrhosis or liver cancer he said "Because you are only 36 years old, I would not be worried"

So naturally, I'm looking for second opinions.

Try the liver specialist directory at HBF (Hepatitis B Foundation):

Thanks, that works out great actually. I found one literally 5 minutes from my house out of only 5 matches in NJ. It says Infectious Disease but his specialties patients look to be Hep B & C
