Just when things started looking up for Lindsay Lohan, a spot of bad news brings her hurtling back down to Earth. The actress and designer reportedly has contracted Chikungunya, a mosquito-transmitted virus while on vacation in French Polynesia. Chikungunya is no picnic either. It causes fever, severe joint and muscle pain that can last days, weeks, or in some cases, months to years.
Lohan dropped the news via her Twitter account, and posted a photo of herself and her travel comrades to Instagram . “I refuse to let a virus effect my peaceful vacation,” she wrote before wishing her followers a happy New Year. Chikungunya doesn’t have a cure, so patients must endure the pain that comes with it. We’re hoping that Lohan isn’t hurting too much and that she’s got good painkillers because Chikungunya is no fun.
Hopefully 2015 will prove healthier and far more prosperous for La Lohan.
