Is a Transient Ischaemic Attack (TIA) a minor form of stroke or does the fact that it is TRANSIENT preclude it from being a stroke?

Warning signs! TIAs are like warning signs! Often they suggest some plaque buildup in the carotid arteries such that if that doesn’t get dealt with, major stroke could occur. How we deal with that is variable based on a few different things but of utmost import is not smoking, managing blood pressure/sugar/cholesterol to goal and after checking with your doc, starting aspirin. .
