There doesn’t seem to be relief in sight for Lindsay Lohan, who has been suffering from a rare virus since before the holidays, and was reportedly hospitalized because of it this week.

While vacationing in Bora Bora, the actress contracted Chikungunya, resulting in severe joint pain and fever. According to TMZ, her condition became so severe, that she went to King Edwards VII’s hospital in London for treatment.

The site reports that the 28-year-old was eventually released when her fever went down, but she’s still suffering from joint pain and was referred to another doctor who specializes in the rare illness. Unfortunately, there is no known cure for Chikungunya.
