Popular TV Star Suffers Second 'Mini-Stroke' EW

A television actor who starred on a popular comedy series for seven seasons in the 2000s has suffered his second "mini-stroke." EW.com reports that Frankie Muniz, who played the title role in Fox's "Malcolm in the Middle," tweeted about his medical situation Monday.

Muniz, 27, reportedly wrote: “Almost a year to the day, I experienced another mini stroke. Hopefully that will be the last. Miserable.”

EW adds: "Muniz was hospitalized last year for a mini-stroke, a term used to describe a [transient] ischemic attack (TIA) when blood temporarily stops reaching the brain."

Muniz reportedly told People magazine after that incident: “I felt like I was getting stabbed in the head -- the worst headache you could ever think of. I couldn’t see anything.”
