Actor Frankie Muniz suffers another 'mini-stroke'

Posted on

Former Malcolm in the Middle star Frankie Muniz revealed that he had recently suffered yet another “mini-stroke.”

The 27-year-old former child star tweeted about the incident on Monday. “Almost a year to the day, I experienced another mini stroke. Hopefully that will be the last. Miserable.” wrote Muniz.

Muniz was hospitalized last year for a mini-stroke, a term used to describe a tangent ischemic attack (TIA) when blood temporarily stops reaching the brain.

The actor-turned-musician later told People, “I felt like I was getting stabbed in the head— the worst headache you could ever think of. I couldn’t see anything.”

Muniz turns 28 on Dec. 5 and is currently pursuing music as a drummer for the band Kingsfoil.
