My right leg from my knee to my ankle has been tingly and on

This answer was rated:

My right leg from my knee to my ankle has been tingly and on and off numb for a week making it awkward for me to walk. I also have been having the chills as well as hot flashes. I am also experiencing really bad cramps in my lower abdomen which could be caused because of my period. I have also vomitted twice today. I don't know if these symptoms go together or what is going on. I am 18 and I am taking Venlafaxine 150 mg one everynight as well as birthcontrol and lorazapam 0.5 mg whenever needed.
