Lindsay Lohan is suffering from Chikungunya, according to her official Instagram account. Lohan flew to French Polynesia for a Christmas vacation, but ended up contracting the Chikungunya virus. Wikipedia reports that the virus causes joint pain and a fever and is currently untreatable – as in, there is no cure at this time.

Lohan won’t let the virus get her own and has taken to social media to bring forth some positivity. Two days ago, she shared: “In good faith with good people. I refuse to let a virus effect my peaceful vacation – be safe and happy on the new year all #wildfox and a positive, healthy new year”.

Despite not feeling well, Lohan has taken to social media to share a few select pictures from her vacation.

Aside from Lindsay Lohan Chikungunya news, we’ve learned that Lohan has been having secret dates with The Script’s Danny O’Donoghue. She and O’Donoghue were guests on The Jonathan Ross Show back in the fall, where they first met.

Shortly after beginning their relationship, they reportedly had a fling and then the former duo went their separate ways. A source close to the situation said, “It just fizzled out.”

Of Lindsay Lohan’s Chikungunya, she took to Twitter to say: “Before I got chikungunya – use Big spray please – God bless.”

Chikungunya is spread by mosquitoes and the resulting pain can last anywhere between days to months. Lohan has just finished up her role as Karen in the West End production of David Mamet’s play Speed-The-Plow. Reportedly, the troubled actress is doing much better since moving to London full time and hasn’t looked back at all on her former life in Los Angeles or New York. Recent reports suggested that the actress was looking to appear on the reality show Millionaire Matchmaker in order to find her true love.
