Popular Twitch streamer Asmongold is back on social media following a health scare that caused an abrupt end to his Diablo 4 Twitch stream.
After visiting the emergency room, the MMO star has assured fans that he’s “totally fine.”
Asmongold’s Return to Twitch and Subsequent Health Scare
To commemorate the much-awaited release of Diablo 4, Asmongold went live on his main Twitch channel for the first time in seven months.
Streaming primarily on his secondary account ‘Zackrawrr’, his reappearance on his main channel was momentous for fans. However, the momentous return was short-lived as Asmongold abruptly concluded his Diablo 4 stream.
Initially, he attributed the sudden conclusion of his stream to stress and anxiety in a Reddit post.
In a recent Twitter video, however, Asmongold revealed more about the incident. He explained that peculiar leg pain, which eventually led him to the emergency room, was the main reason for his absence from Twitch.
The Real Story Behind Asmongold’s Health Concerns
While he acknowledged that his main channel’s return amidst the Diablo 4 launch was “super stressful,” he clarified that stress was not the only factor.
Asmongold admitted that he didn’t initially share the full extent of his situation, even with his family, to avoid causing worry.
The leg pain, which he feared might be a blood clot, was kept under wraps as he attempted to manage it through exercise and rest.
However, the pain persisted, prompting him to make a decision. “I thought enough of the bulls***, I’m gonna go to the emergency room,” he stated.
All Clear from the Emergency Room
Following a brief and expensive visit to his local hospital, Asmongold returned to social media to assure fans that he was alright.
Medical tests showed no blood clot or any serious health issue. He shared, “I’m totally fine. There’s no blood clot, nothing wrong with me. Just whenever something like that happens, it really gets your mind working.”
The health scare sparked a moment of self-reflection for the streamer, leading him to reconsider his lifestyle.
Currently living at what he describes as a “10/10 in terms of degeneracy,” Asmongold is now looking to make healthier life choices.

He jokingly assured fans that he wouldn’t completely give up his beloved gummy lifesavers, but he might reconsider having them for breakfast every day.
