Democratic U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen says that he suffered a minor stroke while giving a speech in western Maryland and has been admitted to George Washington University Hospital.

Van Hollen, 63, released the statement late Sunday, saying that he experienced some lightheadedness and neck pain. He eventually sought medical attention at the recommendation of the Attending Physician.

“Fortunately, I have been informed that there are no long-term effects or damage as a result of this incident, but my doctors have advised that out of an abundance of caution, I remain under observation for a few days,” the senator wrote.

Van Hollen is currently serving as the junior Democratic senator from Maryland alongside Sen. Ben Cardin.

He plans to return to the Senate later this week.

This weekend, after feeling lightheaded while delivering a speech, I sought medical attention at the recommendation of the Attending Physician. I’m feeling much better but will follow doctors’ orders and curtail my schedule for the next few days. My full statement is below: pic.twitter.com/1sYq7FZMqS
