In this forum I will ask medical-related questions that you should be able to easily research. Post your response when you feel comfortable with the answer. Every 1-2 weeks I will award the best respondents with the coveted [color:"green"] PSEUDO-MD DEGREE [/color] <img src="/images/graemlins/king.gif" alt="" />While it means nothing in the real world, in our forum it is a distinction which lets others know you are a health savvy senior.

The goal of these exercises is to get you to learn about common conditions so you will know when to seek medical attention and what you can do to avoid complications from these illnesses.

[color:"red"] PLEASE NOTE THAT UNTIL I GIVE THE 'STAMP OF APPROVAL' ON A POST YOU SHOULD NOT CONSIDER THE POST AS VERIFIED MEDICAL INFORMATION. [/color]

[color:"blue"] Question 1[/color]

Can anyone tell the group what a mini-stroke means?
Next week I will review the responses and reward the best 1 or 2 respondents with the coveted "Pseudo-MD Degree."
