Frankie Muniz opens up about health problems, memory loss

Does Winning Memorable Year Night on'Dancing with the Stars Help You Win the Mirror Ball

The actor who played the title character revealed that he's suffered nine concussions and several mini-strokes, or transient ischemic attacks. "It makes me a little sad", he continued.

"I will tell him, remember this?" Remember that from Malcolm?

Muniz went on to earn a 24 out of 30 for his quickstep with partner Witney Carson.

"I've gotten to really do anything I've want to do, but the truth is I don't really remember much of that". "Every time I go to the doctors they just tell me I'm insane".

In a recent episode he revealed that he suffers from memory loss and doesn't remember his time on the show.

Muniz, who suffered a serious vehicle crash in 2009 while competing as a professional race-car driver, has also endured several concussions - but he says his health battle doesn't affect his desire to work in Hollywood "at all".

In a pre-recorded clip ahead of the performance he said that the memory loss was something he wasn't comfortable discussing. "Things pop back into my mind I should have remembered", he said of his severe memory loss in his rehearsal video. "I'm happy with my acting career, I'm happy the decision I made to drive race cars and to focus on music". It's not something I've looked into.

"I'm not saying those things correlate exactly to why my memory's not great, but I guess if you think about it, it could be", he said. "I didn't know I should remember going to the Emmys". But as memorable as the show is for us, it turns out that the star of series barely remembers any of it. "I realized I have to take care of myself".

"I can see words but I can't tell what they say".

"I'm not a doctor person", he added.

The former Malcolm in the Middle star's girlfriend, Paige, has helped him through it by keeping a journal of their day-to-day lives.

Fans know Frankie Muniz best from the beloved sitcom "Malcolm in the Middle".

Following Muniz and Carson's quickstep performance to "Adventure of a Lifetime" by Coldplay, host Tom Bergeron said, "You seem to be nearly at peace with the fact that you're having memory issues".
