Local gaming YouTuber Han Xiao Ai (韓曉噯, Michell Lim) has been having a tough time recently. The 26-year-old has been sick for a week, worrying fans and followers alike. As it turns out, she’s been diagnosed with an uncommon disease!
Xiao Ai resurfaced on 12th July to update her followers about her health. Apparently, her illness was not only bad enough to knock her off her feet, they also struggled to discover the cause. However, her update on Monday brought shocking news. She’s been diagnosed with Viral Hemorrhagic Fever (VHF).
The local YouTuber revealed her condition to her fans via Instagram Story. She posted a photo of her hand, posing with a cannula, and explained she couldn’t reply everyone individually. “I’ve been sick for a week. Whether (it’s) Covid, flu, mosquitoes, etc., it’s still undetectable,” she sighed. “What’s wrong with my body?” Xiao Ai added that her blood pressure had been falling and she’s been getting feverish without warning. “I can’t wake up in the morning,” she complained. “The nurse has to keep calling me.”
However, on her third admission to the hospital, the YouTuber finally discovered why she had been sick. “The reason for (my hospital visits) is not a disease I’m familiar with, but a viral hemorrhagic fever. Have you heard of it?” she asked. Xiao Ai explained that it was a common virus, but people usually encounter mild symptoms.
One netizen shared that their father had the same virus. Although he recovered, his immune system was weakened. Xiao Ai clarified that for her, she can carry out her daily activities, but her symptoms will hit randomly. Additionally, her blood test showed that everything was fine, but her blood pressure was rather low. “If it’s too low, it will cause shock,” she reportedly added.
Xiao Ai claimed she’s been going to the hospital consistently to deal with her symptoms. She jokingly added that the next time she visits the hospital, she hopes it’s because of a pregnancy. Well, we sincerely hopes she gets better soon!
