Handler opened up about the health scare that forced her to cancel the tour dates.

Her diagnosis: Cardiomyopathy 

Daily Mail reported:

Chelsea Handler is opening up about a recent health scare that led to her canceling multiple dates of her Vaccinated & Horny tour earlier this year.

The topic came up when the comedian, 47, was asked about ‘not taking [herself] too seriously’ during an interview with E!

Handler revealed she’d been unknowingly taking herself way too seriously for many years, which led to her suffering a ‘hospital scare’ in February after a comedy show in Seattle, Washington.

‘I had this cardiomyopathy, which means, like, an adrenaline shot to the heart,’ she explained.

Per the CDC:

Cardiomyopathy represents a collection of diverse conditions of the heart muscle. These diseases have many causes, symptoms, and treatments and can affect people of all ages and races.

When cardiomyopathy occurs, the normal muscle in the heart can thicken, stiffen, thin out, or fill with substances the body produces that do not belong in the heart muscle. As a result, the heart muscle’s ability to pump blood is reduced, which can lead to irregular heartbeats, the backup of blood into the lungs or rest of the body, and heart failure.

Cardiomyopathy can be acquired—developed because of another disease, condition, or factor—or inherited. The cause isn’t always known.

Handler blamed her heart condition on chronic stress.

“I was like, “Was this an instance, or was this building?” And the doctor says, “Well, it’s an instance, but you’ve basically been very stressed for a long period of time and you probably did not recognize that.” And I was like, “Oh, s**t,”‘ she said.

Former Missouri State Representative Cora Walker, 37, died of ‘nonischemic cardiomyopathy,’ according to a medical examiner.
