Popular Twitch streamer Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has sparked concern throughout his fanbase after claiming he suffered a recent leg injury that he claims “nothing” can fix.

One of the biggest streamers on Twitch has, apparently, suffered a serious injury to his leg.

On September 1, an xQc update account posted to Twitter, claiming that xQc had given fans an alert in an offline Twitch chat.

According to the chat logs, xQc has possibly torn the ACL on his right leg, although his message indicates that both legs might be harmed.

xQc is one of the biggest personalities on Twitch, boasting over 9 million followers.

While his messages make the situation sound quite serious, xQc claims he won’t be going to the hospital, writing: “Going to the hospital won’t help. If it’s torn or pulled, it’s donezo. Nothing can save it.”


The streamer went on to explain how he’d sustained the torn ACL, claiming he’d done “some weird run and fall at a terrible angle” and had fallen “on my folded leg, at a twisted angle.”

“Well, something is torn or f**ked inside my knee, regardless. If I’m lucky, it’s one of the laterals and it will heal.”


This isn’t the first time xQc has dealt with some leg-related health concerns; two years ago, xQc went in for surgery to repair a “hole” in his knee, which surgeons had connected and secured with a bolt.


Unfortunately, the bolt moved inside of his body some time later, sparking a visit to the emergency room to fix the issue.

Two years ago, xQc shared a little illustration of his knee surgery with fans to better explain the situation.

Now, it looks like the broadcaster is dealing with yet another complication with his leg, understandably sparking worry amongst his viewers — some of whom are encouraging him to seek medical assistance after reading his claims that going to the hospital “won’t help.”

Fans are understandably concerned about xQc’s latest health concern and are sending him well wishes on social media as we await further updates on his condition.
