We usually associate having a stroke as a medical condition of older age. However, it is possible for a younger person to have a stroke. Frankie Muniz, the 26 year-old actor best known for starring in the sitcom Malcolm in the Middle, suffered a stroke this past Friday. The fact that his symptoms involved difficulties in language likely indicate that it was a left-sided stroke, as language is generally controlled by the left side of the brain. He appears to be doing better from the initial stroke and hopefully will see a full recovery.
