Candida And Seizures

Candidiasis is an infection caused by the over growth of the fungus called Candida albicans. This fungus normally grows in the stomach, which is of great use but harmful if found in other parts of the body. Candida is also termed as thrush or yeast infection. It is normally found in the human stomach as it aids in digestion. But overgrowth of it starts penetrating its root in other parts of the body and gradually spread through out the body making it the most serious sign or symptom of the disease. Yeast also is found in the human body, but it becomes abnormal if it overgrows on a certain parts where it should not even be there. Most women consuming the birth controlling pills experience yeast infection in their life as Candida albicans can be found on the vaginal track due to over production of yeast. In pregnant women, the use of antibiotics and diabetes can be a cause of candida infection.

Seizures

A seizure is also termed as convulsions. It is a temporary abnormal electrophysiologic phenomenon of the brain, resulting in abnormal synchronization of electrical neuronal activity. It can manifest as an alteration in mental state, tonic or clonic movements and different other symptoms. Seizures are due to temporary abnormal electrical activity of a group of brain cells. The medical state of recurrent, unprovoked seizures is termed epilepsy, but some seizures may occur in people with no epilepsy. Siezure is always associated with a sudden contraction of group of muscles.

Symptoms of the Seizures

Symptoms experienced during a seizure depend on where is the brain experencing the disturbance in electrical activity occurs. A person having a tonic-clonic seizure, which is also called as a grand mal seizure, may cry out, lose consciousness and fall to the ground, and convulse, often violently. A person suffering a complex partial seizure may appear confused and dazed and may not be able to respond to questions or direction. Some people have seizures that is not easily noticeable by others. Sometimes, the only symptom that a patient may not always show is a rapid blinking or eaven a few seconds of staring into space
