    My baby is 5 weeks old and when I was pregnant my symptoms werent too bad. However I am taking the ssri Cipralex because I am depressed and I am finding today that I am having prickly numbness in my fingers and toes and on parts of my legs. My collarbone is also hurting a lot and Im having a tightening in my throat. I am totally stressed and getting not much sleep - obviously with baby - so Im not sure if its just that Im run down or and I having a major flare. I have had facial numbness on and off for years, but never felt this prickling before in my hands etc, and its a bit of a worry. I thought maybe it was something to do with the cipralex as Ive only been taking it for 12 days.
    Any help would be appreciated, as this is all making me feel even lower.
    Thanks
