"I told him not to worry about what you remember, what you don't remember".

Muniz said all he recalls of starring on the hit Fox sitcom, which ran for seven seasons from 2000-6, comes from "seeing an episode".

"The actor-turned-race auto driver and his girlfriend Paige write down what they do together to ensure he doesn't forget".

The 31-year-old star, who is now showing off his dancing skills on the latest season of ABC's Dancing With The Stars, said that a number of health issues including nine concussions and many "mini-strokes"- known as TIA's (Transient Ischemic Attack) means he draws a blank when trying to recall some of his fondest memories.

While the 31-year-old doesn't know how or exactly when the problem began, he explained that he's "had nine concussions" and suffered "a fair amount of mini strokes" over the years.

"It makes me a little sad". "I will tell him, "Remember this, remember that, on Malcolm?".

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

So Muniz's most memorable year is this one, because he's learned to live in the present.

9News reports that Muniz also said, "I'm not actually sure how my memory loss started", adding that he has never sought professional advice on his memory loss. It's just how my brain is, so I thought that was normal.

Muniz revealed, "I have gotten to do anything I wanted to do but I don't remember much of that. There's no negative feelings, I just don't necessarily remember".

But during Monday's "Dancing With the Stars", Muniz revealed that he has nearly no memory of those days - or many others.

Now, with help, he's able to retrieve some memories.

Muniz said, "I get sad of the thought of losing the memory because I know that I do, so she writes literally in detail, she's a writer, a journal so I can look at any day and it does bring me back".
