(Newser) – Nearly a year after suffering a mini stroke, Frankie Muniz had a second, the Los Angeles Times reports. "Almost a year to the day, I experienced another mini stroke. Hopefully that will be the last. Miserable," tweeted Muniz, who turns 28 next week, on Monday. He hasn't released any further details, and doctors never did figure out what caused his first mini stroke. (The mini version can act as a warning of what could come: a full-blown stroke, notes the Times.) Muniz says he has never had a drink or done drugs, but has admitted to having a poor diet.

He needs to get an in depth MRI brain scan. They can give him an I.V. dye that will highlight if he has any possible aneurysms in his brain or any other anomaly that could lead to future strokes. My dad had 2 'silent strokes' in 01 and now is in assisted care with dementia with the intellect of a 2 yr old. Had they caught them sooner... who knows? Muniz needs to monitor these strokes, IMO. I hope he has a very good doctor...

Poor kid. Must worry all the time if the big one is coming. Scary.
