While the 26-year-old has not sent a tweet with any further details, sources told TMZ that he was rushed to an Arizona emergency room when his friends noticed him “acting really weird.” They said that he had trouble speaking and understanding what they were saying.
Doctors do not know the cause of the mini stroke and Muniz is still waiting more test results.
The actor celebrates his birthday Wednesday and is supposed to start touring with the band Kingsfoil Friday. However, his doctors told him to rest easy, advice it sounds like he is taking based on his tweet.
Muniz starred on Malcolm in the Middle from 2000 to 2006 and has appeared in films like Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story. He recently appeared on Tim Allen’s Last Man Standing and played himself on ABC’s Don’t Trust The B--- in Apt. 23.
