Go to ER: If you are having any symptoms of stroke, go to the hospital immediately. Call an ambulance. Do not try to drive yourself. If there is a hospital with a acute stroke program nearby then go to it. If your symptoms have resolved you should still go. Transient ischemic attacks can be followed by stroke. Take your symptoms seriously!
