Meanwhile, TMZ reported that people at the coffee shop said Mandel frequented that specific location and were left puzzled as to what might have happened when Mandel went down seemingly out of nowhere.
Furthermore, the report cited sources close to the comedian who believe Mandel fainted due to low blood sugar and say doctors are running a battery of tests to be sure.
Mandel opened up about managing his anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder for most of his life and told People magazine that comedy has helped him cope with the daily struggles that come with it.
Mandel explained that, although he’s been open about his condition, he’s never fully revealed how low he can get when his condition impacts him. In particular, he tends to worry about his wife, Terry, and their kids, son Alex, 31, and daughters Riley, 28, and Jackie, 36.

In normal times, he would simply focus on the fact that his family was fine. However, in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic last year, the star says his OCD was kicked into overdrive.
“There isn’t a waking moment of my life when ‘we could die’ doesn’t come into my psyche,” he told the outlet. “But the solace I would get would be the fact that everybody around me was okay. It’s good to latch onto okay. But [during the pandemic] the whole world was not okay. And it was absolute hell.”
