Actor Frankie Muniz, the former child television star who appeared on "Malcolm in the Middle," told his Twitter followers he suffered a "ministroke." Muniz just turned 27-years-old. But doctors say, strokes are striking people at a younger age.
Muniz was reportedly taken to an emergency room when friends noticed he was confused and had trouble speaking. He says it was a Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) or a mini-stroke.
Dr. George Newman, a neurologist at Einstein Medical Center, calls it a warning that a bigger stroke could happen in the future. "A blood vessel to his brain was blocked and, as a result, there was not enough oxygen getting there and then immediately that part of the brain shut down," says Newman.
