Brief Answer:
If symptoms developed acutely during a day go to emergency room

Detailed Answer:
Dear Mrs,

If it is an acute onset during some hours or a day, you need to refer to ER.

In case you have these symptoms for several days, it will be better to visit your doctor, in this case you will have a possibility for complete examination and investigations.

Hope I could help you

Wishing you good health
