Actor Frankie Muniz Suffers Mini-Stroke
Former “Malcolm in the Middle” star Frankie Muniz is recovering from a mini-stroke.
The actor-turned-musician tweeted about his trip to the hospital last week.
“I was in the hospital last Friday,” Muniz wrote. “I suffered a ‘Mini Stroke’, which was not fun at all. Have to start taking care of my body! Getting old!”
Sources told TMZ, the then 26-year-old was taken to a hospital in Arizona last Friday. Friends say he started “acting really weird.”
Muniz celebrates his 27th birthday on December 5th.
He is a drummer with the band “Kingsfoil.” They are set to launch a tour on Friday.
According to the Cleveland Clinic, a mini-stroke, also known as a transient ischemic attack (TIA), occurs when a blood clot temporarily clogs an artery and blood flow to the brain is restricted.
TIA’s do not cause lasting damage to the brain, but could be a warning that you could have a stroke in the future.
