Frankie Muniz is addressing the rumors about his health.

While appearing on Steve-O’s Wild Ride! podcast, Frankie revealed that the mini-strokes were misdiagnosed and misreported by the media, and that he had really been suffering from migraine auras.

“This is the first time that I’ve actually ever gotten to clarify [the rumor],” Frankie explained. “If you search my name, all it talks about is how like I have no memory or I’m dying of strokes and all this kind of stuff. … You search my name (and) it’s basically, ‘Frankie is dying.’”

“I’ve thought about it a lot like over my years of like, you know, why do I have a bad memory? You know what I mean? The only logical thing I can say is, yeah, I’ve had nine concussions. I don’t want to blame the concussions or blame anything else. I just think it’s the fact that I did so f–king much in that time frame that of course I can’t remember all of it,” Frankie added, talking about his very busy work schedule when he was younger.

Frankie then looked back at his time on Dancing with the Stars in 2017 when he came in third place, and explained how he hard a time remembering how he felt about things from back in the early 2000s.

“To be honest, like, I love Dancing With the Stars, and I don’t want to say anything that will make them hate me, but they kind of tell you what your most memorable year is going to be,” Frankie said.

He added, “You know what I mean? And they were like, ‘It’s 2001 because it’s when you were nominated for an Emmy and the Golden Globes’ and all that kind of stuff. And I go, ‘I don’t remember what I felt then. I don’t, you know? It was me kind of blowing off the fact that I can’t say ‘That’s my favorite year’ because I can’t tell you what happened in 2001… I had to say, like, ‘I don’t really remember.’ But I wasn’t saying I don’t remember anything.”
