TMZ has learned that Lindsay Lohan is in a London hospital with a rare, incurable virus she apparently picked up in Bora Bora.

Sources say Lohan contracted Chikungunya, a virus transmitted by mosquito bites that causes fever, joint pain and fatigue. Lohan vacationed in Bora Bora over the holidays and then flew to Los Angeles to shoot an Esurance commercial, which is believed to be for the Super Bowl.

Lohan began complaining of the illness just before New Year’s. She then went back to London where she became so ill she couldn’t walk. The actress is currently in King Edward VII’s Hospital, the same place the Queen gets treated. As for her prognosis, sources add that the joint pain could last for months.
