Ma'am, I do not see you in the chat so I'm just going to go ahead and give you the answer I would give regardless of what we would say if you were in the chat.
the bottom line is you are 65 years old with symptoms that could represent stroke or intra-cranial hemorrhage.
Is it likely to be either? no, but it's also possible, and the chances are somewhere in the 1-5% range depending on your other medical problems.
if this is the worst case, and this is a bleed, the aspirin will make the bleed worse.
so, the answer, I'm afraid, is to go to the nearest ER now.
you need a head CT scan
and an exam to rule out a stroke syndrome or a bleed inside the brain.
there really is no way whatsoever, no matter what you would say if we were conversing, that my answer, as a board certified ER physician would be any different than this.
as well, you have a family history of stroke.
not a time to take any chances.
please go to the ER now, and it would be best if you went by ambulance.
