Donny........don't treat that so lightly....mini-stroke. I believe they're called transient strokes. Someone very close to me was permanently disabled and finally died three years after she suffered a full stroke. The doctor said she was probably warned with small "transient" strokes (mini-strokes?) before the big one hit and, had she known that, and had taken immediate medical treatment the major stroke would never have happened.
I just had my arteries tested for "circulation." The doctor said so far I'm in the "safe zone." But, at this age, everyone should have tests once a year. Believe me, if you don't die, you don't want to be left in an after-stroke condition.
I think Gary might be able to shed more light on "transient strokes." My GP said to keep the odds on my side...take a mini-aspirin every day for the rest of my life (to thin out the blood).
