is a TIA a real stroke?

I looked it up online and saw its only a mini stroke. If a person has a stroke once it increases their chances of another stroke but since mine was only a mini stroke would my chances of a real stroke remain the same and my chances of another mini stroke increase

Update:

I have neurofibromatosis and high blood pressure

  • I don't believe that a Transient Ischemic Attack is clinically considered a stroke. However, a TIA is often a precursor for the real thing.

    You are at high risk for further mini strokes and for full sized ones.
