Frankie Muniz recently had a "mini-stroke," he tweeted Monday.

It's the second such episode for the former "Malcolm in the Middle" star, who turns 28 on Dec. 5, according to US Weekly.

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

Following his initial stroke in December 2012, Muniz talked about the experience on "Good Morning America." "I couldn't say words," he said. "I thought I was saying them! My fiancee was looking at me like I was speaking a foreign language."

He added, "I'm happy I'm alive."

This is where we don't make a joke about the health of his career, because it's not nice to do such things to guys in their 20s who are having strokes.

Muniz, who was once deemed "one of Hollywood's most bankable teens," put his career on hold to pursue becoming a race car driver in 2008. He currently plays drums in his band "You Hang Up," and has been engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Elycia Marie Turnbow, since October 2011.

Several hours after sharing the news of his second health scare, he also told followers he sold his Smart Car. "Gonna miss that little (expletive)," he wrote.
