Frankie Muniz has had another health scare.

The 27-year-old former Malcolm in the Middle star took to Twitter yesterday to reveal he's had another "mini stroke."

"Almost a year to the day, I experienced another mini stroke," the actor wrote. "Hopefully that will be the last. Miserable."

Muniz's second mini stroke (which is tiny lapses in blood flow to the brain) comes one year after he experienced his first back in November 2012. "I was in the hospital last Friday," he announced on Twitter at the time. "I suffered a 'Mini Stroke,' which was not fun at all. Have to start taking care of my body! Getting old!"

After the scare, Muniz appeared on Good Morning America to give fans an update on his health.

"I couldn't say words," Muniz said of the stroke. "I thought I was saying them. My fiancée was looking at me as if I was speaking a foreign language."

At the time, Muniz insisted he lives a healthy lifestyle free of drugs and alcohol. "I'm still trying to make sense of it," he said, adding, "but happy I'm alive."
