thoughts about migraine symptoms

I've had an ongoing debate with myself about whether and when to go to the ER with certain migraine symptoms that resemble symptoms of "mini-strokes" (transient ischemic attacks in medical terms) I had some symptoms this evening thatconcerned me quite a bit, and I can't find a clear answer about what to do since they're standard migraine symptoms for me but could also indicate a TIA. The problem is that if they indicate a TIA they also indicate risk of stroke. If they're not a TIA but migraine symptoms, they may or may not indicate stroke risk. So I don't really know what to do, but if I ever again have symptoms as severely as I did tonight I will probably play it safe and go to the ER. They'll do a bunch of tests and probably send me home, but it's probably a better safe than sorry situation.

I don't like talking like this. It scares me. I'm ok now, but I'm feeling the need to be mindful. And now I'm feeling the need to sleep.
