Gorka Marquez addresses hospital visit

Taking to social media today (December 23), Gorka thanked fans for their well-wishes.

He then went on to reveal that he had rhabdomyolysis – a condition caused by muscle breakdown and muscle death.

The condition left Gorka with “very high” CK enzymes levels, meaning that he had to be treated.

Had to get it treated

Alongside a shot of himself, the star said: “THANK YOU everyone for the lovely messages.

“Just to clarify I didn’t have COVID or anything related to COVID vaccinations.”

In addition, he explained: “I had Rhabdomyolysis condition in which damaged skeletal muscle breaks down rapidly…

“Which led to my CK enzymes levels to be very high and that could lead to my kidneys to stop working.
