According to TMZ, Lindsay 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.
TMZ reports Lindsay is currently in King Edward VII's Hospital ... the same place the Queen gets treated. They're keeping Lindsay because she has a high fever and the joint pain is unbearable.
As for her prognosis ... TMZ says the joint pain could last for months.
