Thank you for posting your query.

First of all, I would like to reassure you that your symptoms do not suggest anything serious, as your CT scan of the brain is normal.

Only very small tumors may get missed on CT scan, which can be picked up on MRI brain.

Lorazepam is a drug for sleeping and calming effect.

There is no need to worry at present. Neurosurgery consultation and MRI brain would sort out the issue.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
