Frankie Muniz is in the middle of another health scare.
On Monday, the 27-year-old actor revealed he suffered another mini-stroke. The former "Malcolm in the Middle" star tweeted:

In December 2012, Muniz opened up to People about his terrifying experience following his first stroke.
"I was really dizzy and in a lot of pain in my whole body and my head. My hands were numb. I didn't really have good balance," he revealed. "I felt like I was getting stabbed in the head — the worst headache you could ever think of. I couldn't see anything."
Muniz admitted that while he eats "like a 7 to 10-year-old-kid," he lives a healthy lifestyle.
"I never in my life had a sip of alcohol or even touched a drug," the actor-turned-musician added. "I take a lot of pride in that."
So what is a mini-stroke? According to the Mayo Clinic, it refers to a transient ischemic attack (TIA) — a temporary interruption of blood flow to part of the brain, spinal cord or retina.
While Muniz has yet to reveal an underlying cause, it appears that his spirit is intact.
After tweeting about his mini-stroke, he shared: "Sold my Smart Car today. Gonna miss that little b---h."
