MSNBC anchor Yasmin Vossoughian told viewers why she was away from the studio for several weeks.

Vossoughian revealed to her viewers on Saturday that she had been missing for a while because she developed myocarditis and pericarditis.

She said the cause of her illness was a “literal common cold”.

“I know from my Twitter feed that many of you have wondered why I have been off the air for a little while. Well, I’ve been dealing with a little bit of a health scare,” Vossoughian said.

“On December 20th, I began to feel chest pains and they waxed and waned over a period of 10 days. I wasn’t quite sure what to make of it, but as they continued to get worse I started to think something was actually wrong.”

Initially, the doctor thought she was experiencing reflux.

“I didn’t really buy it, but I was relieved it wasn’t my heart. My body, though, was pretty certain not to believe the reflux. The next day on December 30th, I woke up with severe pains, both in my chest and in my left shoulder. And it was like a tightening in my chest when I took deep breaths that got worse when I was laying flat,” she added.

“My husband drove me to the emergency room and from there the nightmare that has been my January began. I was diagnosed with pericarditis, inflammation of the lining of my heart,” she explained.

“Brought on by a virus. A literal common cold.”

“I also had fluid around my heart that had to be drained or else it could hinder the beating of my heart. I was hospitalized for four nights and transferred from a local hospital to NYU Langone here in New York City,” she said.

Vossoughian is still in disbelief at her current health situation, saying that she was a healthy person and that she had a pretty healthy lifestyle.

“I want to remind you I run 7 miles three to four times a week. I do yoga. I don’t eat meat. I don’t smoke. I drink occasionally. Aside from probably not getting enough sleep and working too much, I’m a pretty healthy person,” she said.



NBC’s Yasmin Vossoughian opens up about why she hasn’t been on air in a few weeks, telling viewers that a common cold lead into the development of Myocarditis, causing inflammation around her heart. She brings in Dr. Greg Katz, cardiologist at NYU Langone Hospital, who breaks down the condition.

Although Vossoughian said a “common cold” caused her to develop myocarditis, she did receive the experimental COVID-19 shot.

“Also we are both vaccinated…that was confirmed before this pic!” Vossoughian tweeted in April 2021.

From NBC News last year:

NBCUniversal, the parent company of NBC News, is requiring U.S.-based workers returning to the office to be fully vaccinated, Executive Vice President Adam Miller told employees in an email on Aug. 11. Employees will also be required to provide details about their vaccination status.

The company’s Jan. 18 office return has been halted.

“We do not plan to embark on our larger return in January and the pause will remain in place until we begin to see significant declines in the spread of the virus,” Chairman Cesar Conde told employees in an internal memo Jan. 4.

Multiple medical professionals have called for the immediate suspension of the mRNA COVID-19 shots due to their cardiac-related risks.

Breaking Digest recently reported that renowned MIT professor and drug safety analytics specialist, Prof. Retsef Levi called for the immediate suspension of all experimental mRNA COVID vaccines.
