Symptom experts: Palliative medicine doctors specialize in managing difficult to control symptoms in patients with life-limiting conditions, such as cancer and advanced heart/lung/kidney/liver diseases. Most palliative medicine doctors trained in internal medicine or family medicine before deciding to specialize in palliative medicine but some have other backgrounds, such as geriatricians or oncologists.

It may be yeast: Yeast infections are common in women who take strong antibiotics. They kill the healthy bacteria in the vagina as well as as the chlamydia you are trying to kill. This allows the yeast that are normally present in small amounts to have a party because the healthy bacteria are not there to keep them in check. Follow up with your doctor.

Much can be done: Most cancer pain can be controlled by a palliative medicine or pain specialist. It may take a combination of medications that work in different ways, interventional procedures such as nerve blocks or implantable pain pumps, radiation therapy and other modalities such as massage or acupuncture.
