Thank you for your question. The fungal infection of your oral cavity could possibly be a condition known as oral thrush. This is caused by a fungal yeast called Candida albicans. We are not certain if this may be related to your nervous system symptoms, but it is a possibility. In rare cases candida can infect the nervous system causing meningo-encephalitis (infection and inflammation of the nervous system and brain). This is a very however is a very serious infection, and requires immediate treatment. We strongly recommend that you follow up with a thorough neurological examination by your doctor and blood testing to determine if your symptoms are indeed being caused by an infection or another type inflammatory condition of the nervous system. At this point, we are unable to asses how serious this will become, so we recommend that you err on the side of caution and seek medical attention immediately.
