Absolutely. : Taking antibiotics is the single most common cause of oral thrush. Once you stop the antibiotics the thrush should disappear. If it doesn't then have your doctor prescribe an anti fungal lozenge.

Sorry too vague. : There are too many possibilities for left sided chest/abdominal pain to suitably answer this question in the space available and without a clinical exam and laboratory tests. If you remain concerned you should go back to your doctor and ask him to perform a diagnostic work up.

Not healthy patients: One of the most common causes of thrush is chronic antibiotic usage. It can occur with a single course of antibiotics but not usually. It also occurs frequtntly in chronically ill and debilitated patients or those who are immuno-compromised. Healthy patients generally do not get thrush.
