On June 22, YouTube streamer Valkyrae, real name Rachel Hofstetter, tweeted that she had to “cancel streaming today.” In her original post, she added that she was in the hospital for what was originally thought to be appendicitis, but “may be something else.” Valkyrae then ended the tweet that she would “make it up to you later!”
Later that day, after being hospitalized for six hours and running various tests for her vague abdominal pain, Valkyrae tweeted on her unconfirmed account that she would “rest today” but that the hospital would have her back the following day for more tests.
Valkyrae explained that abdominal pain was caused by cysts on the ovaries. She described the pain as “sharp” with a “bloated, uncomfortable bowel.” Valkyrae also said the pain could not be identified to a specific area.
