TMZ reported the retired actor was taken to an emergency room in Arizona on Nov. 30 after his friends noticed he had trouble speaking.
A “mini-stroke”, or transient ischemic attack, happens when blood flow to a part of the brain is blocked, according to WebMD.
Someone who suffers from a “mini-stroke” may be more likely to have a stroke in the future.
Muniz is in the band Kingsfoil and was recently seen on ABC’s “Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23.”
