"Malcolm in the Middle" star Frankie Muniz suffered a mini-stroke last week -- and sources tell TMZ, doctors are still stumped about the cause.

Sources close to Frankie tell TMZ, the 26-year-old was taken to an Arizona ER on Friday when friends noticed he was "acting really weird" -- having trouble speaking and understanding words -- and they got freaked out.

Doctors told Frankie he had suffered a "mini-stroke" though they didn't know what caused it. We're told Frankie's still awaiting test results.

Frankie's birthday is tomorrow and his band Kingsfoil is set to begin touring on Friday -- but he's currently under doctor's orders to take it easy.

At 39 I had what drs called a mini stroke. 3 yrs later I had, I thought, another one. Turns out I have silent migraines. They are migraines w/o the headache. I lose my speech for several hrs. Maybe thats what happened to Frankie.

I started having TIAs when I was 18 and was very miserable up until I was 23 when a doctor finally diagnosed me with antiphospholipid antibody syndrome or APS. It is an autoimmune disease, maybe this is the cause of his TIA. Whatever it is I wish him a full recovery.

HE IS A LITTLE SMALLER THAN THE AVERAGE PERSON AND PERHAPS IT IS A GENETIC DEFECT OR COULD BE DRUGS

My brother suffered from migraines and started to get mini strokes in his twenties. He has a rare disease called Cadasil! You can find out from a blood test if you have it.

Things like this happen to those who play with themselves. He could not act for starters and it was a stupid show. Secondly if he only stopped taking drugs he would be healthier.

Could be factor v Leiden. Its a condition similar to hemophilia but instead of excessive bleeding the body randomly forms blood clots. I have it.
