Doctors in Arizona treating actor Frankie Muniz are stumped as to what caused the 26-year-old to suffer a "mini-stroke" last week.

TMZ reports Muniz was taken to the ER last Friday "when friends noticed he was 'acting really weird' -- having trouble speaking and understanding words -- and they got freaked out."

Test results are pending, and while Muniz' band Kingsfoil is poised to embark on a tour later this week, doctors have apparently requested the onetime "Malcolm in the Middle" star take things easy.

Muniz, who resides in Arizona, had some troubles with the law in 2011 when a fight with his girlfriend escalated to involve a gun.
