TMZ reports that Lindsay Lohan has been hospitalized after contracting chikungunya, a rare and incurable virus she picked up while in Bora Bora at the end of December.

TMZ reports that Lohan, suffering from a high fever and experiencing joint pain described as "unbearable," was admitted to King Edward VII hospital in London.

According to the website, the 28-year-old actress flew to the French Polynesian island to film a commercial for Esurance, and stayed for some personal time.

The actress was initially optimistic after learning that she had contracted the virus, captioning one Instagram photo, "I refuse to let a virus [affect] my peaceful vacation."

UPDATE: TMZ reports that Lohan's fever has broken and she's been released from hospital. Sources told the website the actress is still in intense pain and has been referred to a specialist.
