Nobody knows exactly what was wrong with Togashi, some people say he suffered from a really big burnout, and as Japanese society has hard work ethics, he broke under the big pressure. He loves his work, but he was also stubborn enough not to share the part of the work, as Hunter x Hunter is his baby. He wanted to cover all the creating aspects by himself.
The official version is that he had serious back problems and had to take a long break to recover from this issue. One editor from Shueisha confirmed that Togashi-sensei’s current condition was not much better last year. “He is still suffering from lumbago and it had not improved” he said. Lumbago is a medical condition that targets the lower back.
