Stroke-like symptoms, pulling sensation in groin, losing coordination. Taking Cipralex

Hello, I have been living under alot of stress for the past 3 years. I have also overdone meditation . I recently admitted myself to the hospital after experiencing what was diagnosed as stroke like symptons except all tests came back clear. No stroke but am experiencing a strong pulling sensation on left side of body and in the nerves in my head and neck to the point of extreme discomfort. Pulling sensation in the groin area. When walking still noticed uncoordination at times with feet. Am continuing to lose weight even though eating healthy. Have done research and know something is out of balance with sympathetic and para-sympathetic nervous systems. Am on Cipralex (10mg.) and Lorazapam (.5 in am and .5 at night). Could these be harmful if there is something depleted with nervous system. Am 54 year old female. Thank you,

Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Cipralex (Escitalopram) is an anti-depressant / anti-anxiety medication and Lorazepam is an anti-anxiety medication. These are not harmful to the nervous system. They are used commonly and can be effective in controlling anxiety.

It is likely that your symptoms are predominantly anxiety-related. It is important to understand that anxiety can present with not only psychological symptoms but also with physical or bodily symptoms. These medication would have been prescribed to you to control your anxiety and unnecessary fears. Please follow the advise of your doctor and go for regular follow-ups.

Wish you all the best.
