Lindsay Lohan Suffering From Rare Virus Called Chikungunya
Lindsay Lohan is suffering from a rare virus called Chikungunya, according to the star’s Twitter account. She shared the above photo showing off her Polynesian vacation with the caption: “@patrickaufdenkamp #nofilter #merrychristmas”, but it was a Twitter post that sent fans into a frenzy.
She shared on the social networking service: “Before I got chikungunya – use Big spray please – God bless.”
Along with the tweet was a link to the below picture on Instagram:
The rehabbed actress also plans for more positivity in the coming year. She shared on Instagram:
According to the World Health Organization, Chikungunya is transmitted through mosquito bites and causes fever, joint paint, fatigue and a rash, and is sometimes mistaken for dengue. Unfortunately for LiLo, there is no cure and the joint pain can last for months.
Hopefully for her sake, doctors can at least help her remain comfortable as she deals with this unfortunate situation. Stay strong, Lindsay and hopefully 2015 will be better!
