Frankie Muniz: Second Stroke At Age 27By: Val Powell - November 26, 2013
“I was in the hospital last Friday. I suffered a “Mini Stroke”, which was not fun at all. Have to start taking care of my body! Getting old!” He wrote.
This second stroke comes almost exactly one year after he was hospitalized for a similar health crisis.
Here’s what Frankie had to say after his first stroke
“Almost a year to the day, I experienced another mini stroke,” Frankie tweeted Monday ”
Hopefully that will be the last. Miserable.”
Although strokes are believed to happen to older people, mini strokes can also happen to younger people. “Stroke has been noted to having an increased frequency in young adults without a clear cause, “says Dr. Richard B. Libman, Vice Chair of Neurology at the Cushing Neuroscience Institute in Manhasset, N.Y. Dr Libman told CBSNews that “stroke has been known as the disease for the elderly especially those with preexistent atherosclerotic and heart disease.
A stroke is a brain attack that happens when blood supply to the brain is stopped due to narrow blood vessels or when the vessel bursts and fills the spaces around the cells of the brain with blood. As a result, the cells may die due to insufficient oxygen or bleeding.
