Different directions: There are many different possible causes of the sensation that you feel, from infections to anxiety and many in between. I assume your physician performed an exam and several tests before giving you ativan (lorazepam). However, since the sensation has moved to another area i would suggest an exam by an ENT physician. Perhaps a fresh perspective will provide answers.

Ask the doc: Since you are being treated for what appears to be anxiety/mood disorder these are good questions to be asked to your psychiatrist.
