While he was obviously not specific as to the reason or nature of his visit to the hospital, it very likely had to do with a neck condition that he has been complaining about over the past few days.


On March 17, the Fortnite superstar revealed that he had been battling swelling in his neck, which he chalked up to playing and streaming too much and not being hydrated enough.

On March 19, he provided his first update on the situation, tweeting out about how his neck was still swollen despite the fact that he had already been on antibiotics for a considerable amount of time.

“Over 48 hours on antibiotics and my neck is still swollen,” he wrote. “I’m going to see a specialist tomorrow.”

Whether or not visiting the emergency room is Tfue’s idea of going to a specialist remains unclear, however, the streamer has admitted that he may ultimately need to get surgery on his neck in order to fix the issue.


Fans will just have to wait for more updates to see how Tfue’s situation ends up unfolding, but the possibility that he may miss considerable time from streaming remains is looking more and more likely.
