Lindsay Lohan was all smiles when she arrived in New York City on Dec. 30, but she was likely suffering from a lot of pain. The actress spent her holiday in French Polynesia, where she contracted a rare virus called Chikungunya.

After several picturesque Instagram posts, the 28-year-old revealed her condition to fans two days after Christmas. Along with a photo of herself on a jet ski, the Mean Girls star wrote, “Before I got chikungunya. use Big [bug] spray please. God bless.”

Chikungunya is a virus transmitted by infected mosquitos, and causes fever and severe joint pain, which can last for several months. Unfortunately, there is no cure, although there are methods to help relieve symptoms.

LiLo didn’t let the illness get her down, though. “In good faith with good people,” she wrote on Monday. “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.”
