Actress rushed to hospital with rare incurable disease

Mean Girls star Lindsay Lohan has had a very tough few weeks of it.

Shortly after Christmas, the actress was diagnosed with a rare virus which she is believed to have picked up while on holidays in French Polynesia. Although she did return to work in LA and had been posting updates until the middle of last week, it's thought the actress is now back in hospital again.

TMZ are reporting that when Lindsay returned to London from LA this week, she became so ill that she could not walk due to severe joint pain. The actress was rushed to King Edward VII hospital last night with a high fever and is still being treated there.

Lindsay had been enjoying a dream holiday in French Polynesia over the Christmas period, but the trip came to an end when she contracted Chikungunya, a virus transmitted by infected mosquitos.

Although the joint pain could last for months, as Lindsay is young her prognosis looks good otherwise. We wish her a full recovery!
