Frankie Muniz, the former child star of MALCOLM IN THE MIDDLE has suffered a mild stroke that landed him in the ER. Now 26, Muniz had been touring with his band, Kingsfoil, but now a tour with the group is put on hold by doctor’s orders, sidelining the young star for a while.
The actor began an episode where he had difficulty speaking or understanding what others were saying to him when friends noticed he was having these unusual symptoms. The cause turned out to be a small stroke.
Often the brain can recover very well, while at other times one stroke can sometimes be the sign before very serious symptoms can only worsen, sometimes with fatal results.
