Lindsay Lohan’s been hospitalized with the Chikungunya virus

It was only a few weeks ago when Lindsay Lohan‘s vacation was nearly ruined after she contracted a case of the mosquito-borne Chikungunya virus. She seemed to be soldiering on, not wanting to miss out on precious yachting time, but apparently it’s got the better of her again and she’s been so ill that she was forced to seek treatment at a London hospital.

Lindsay Lohan is in a London hospital with a rare, incurable virus she apparently picked up in Bora Bora … TMZ has learned.

We’re told Lindsay contracted Chikungunya, a virus transmitted by mosquito bites that causes fever, joint pain and fatigue.

Lindsay vacationed in Bora Bora over the holidays and then flew to L.A. to shoot an Esurance commercial … we believe for the Super Bowl.

Lindsay began complaining of the illness just before New Year’s. She then went back to London where she became so ill she couldn’t walk.

Lindsay is currently in King Edward VII’s Hospital … the same place the Queen gets treated. They’re keeping Lindsay because she has a high fever and the joint pain is unbearable. As for her prognosis … we’re told the joint pain could last for months.

Oh man, that’s not very fun. You really don’t have anything in life if you don’t have your health, and being in constant pain to the point that you can’t walk or do anything is so depressing and awful. No matter what you think of Lindsay Lohan, I don’t think anyone deserves to be ill/in pain (except maybe child molesters or some shit, but you get my point).

Hope you recover soon, LiLo.

  • I know what its like to not be in good health and to not be able to get out of bed or in and out of the hospital. I hope she makes a speedy recovery.

  • Something about a chicken and a gun? How many people have watched at least 1 episode of “Monsters Inside Me”? Usually, these viruses and parasites are very hard to catch unless you do something totally stupid like eat a slug(like this one chick did on one of the episodes and she damn near died). So, mosquito bite? Is the entire population of Bora Bora not getting bitten by mosquitoes? I hope she doesn’t die, of course, but I don’t buy that story.

  • How is this news? She wastes tons of money, time and effort and faces ill health or medical problems to get out of her many lies and endless broken legal obligations..
