Lindsay Lohan has been battling a rare untreatable virus for a month now, but things have taken a dramatic turn for the worse and the Canyons actress has been hospitalized in London, England.
Last month while on vacation, Lohan shared via Twitter that she had contracted a rare mosquito-borne virus called chikungunya, which causes joint pain, fever and fatigue.
At the time, the Mean Girls star urged fans to use bug spray, but insisted that she was not going to let her illness ruin her vacation. However, her health has now taken a turn for the worse.
According to TMZ, during the actress’s London trip she became so ill that she was unable to walk, and had to be hospitalized.
TMZ reported that Lohan was treated at King Edward VII’s Hospital (where the Queen is treated). She was admitted with a high fever and unbearable joint pain, but has since been released after her fever broke sufficiently. However, Lohan is still believed to be in an immense amount of pain, and her doctors have reportedly referred her to a specialist who treats chikungunya.
The virus is rarely fatal, but the terrible pain can apparently last for months, and even years in some cases.
Aside from Lohan’s health problems, things are looking up in her life and she is trying to get her career back on track. According to the Daily Mail, she currently has three films in pre-production: Life Travelers, Six Gun Dead and Soul Carriers.
We hope you feel better soon, Lindsay Lohan!
