I am assuming that all of your symptoms cleared. Did they feel you had a TIA? It would be a stroke if your symptoms did not clear in 24 hours. Here is a link to a post I just wrote on TIA's . I am ssuming you received a complete workup for your symptoms. You are somewhat young to be having stroke symptoms, but it certainly happens and it requires a detailed evaluation of your blood and heart, in addition to the usual causes of a stroke. You cannot ignore this episode.

It is imperative that you get a thorough evaluation. Do you have a primary care doctor you can go to? If not, ask the ER for a referral and ask for a complete copy of all of the tests that were perfomed that day in the ER.

Good Luck.
After your stroke you may be experiencing a new normal, but remember what George Eliot said- It is never too late to be what you might have been. You still can achieve new goals.
