In brief: It varies.
A mini stroke typically refers to a transient ischemic attack which resolves on its own.
There can be different symptoms, depending on the area affected. But unlike a stroke a TIA doesn't destroy brain cells or cause permanent disability. However, tias may recur and each TIA increases the risk of a subsequent stroke. You should talk to your doctor and get evaluated appropriately.
