Default possible stroke?

My hamster Icicle is about 2 years old. She's just been to the vet last week for a possible abscess or tumor near her cheek. She's been prescribed meloxidyl for the pain and swelling and an antibiotic called enrofloxacin.

She was totally ok last night, and 2 hours later, I woke her up to take her medicine, and she ate it like normal, but then she came downstairs 30 seconds later and started limping and lying on the ground. Then she went back up and went back to sleep, still acting weird. It was all so sudden and I don't know what happened to her and no vets near me are open for hours.

I'm so worried, I've never seen her act that way before and I don't know what I should do, if anything right now. I don't know if she'll be ok and I don't want to wake her up if she's in any pain.

and if she did have a stroke, I don't know how to help her or what I should do
