Develop Scripts: One way to deal with "not knowing what to say" is to develop templates or scripts. Another thing you can do is create 5 to 7 questions you will ask another person when you meet, such as, "where did you grow up?" or "what do you do in your spare time"? If you focus on learning about the other person and get them to talk about themself, it takes the focus off you.

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!
