Frankie Muniz miserable after suffering second mini-stroke

27 November 2013 / 2 years 11 months ago

Frankie Muniz has suffered a second mini-stroke.

The former 'Malcolm in the Middle' star is "miserable" after experiencing another attack, nearly one year after overcoming his first health scare.

The 27-year-old actor-turned-drummer, who performs with the group Kingsfoil, tweeted on Monday (25.11.13): "Almost a year to the day, I experienced another mini stroke. Hopefully that will be the last. Miserable."

Frankie suffered his first mini-stroke in December 2012 and was taken to hospital in Scottsdale, Arizona after his fiancee, Elycia Marie Turnbow, noticed he was having trouble speaking and understanding their conversations.

He later admitted he was "happy" to be alive.

He said: "I couldn't say words. I thought I was saying them! My fiancee was looking at me like I was speaking a foreign language."

Mini-strokes usually affect those over the age of 55. They are temporary interruptions of blood flow to part of the brain but do not kill brain tissue.

But it appears Frankie's latest scare wasn't too serious as he tweeted later on Monday that he had sold his beloved Smart Car.

He tweeted: "Gonna miss that little b***h."
