Avril Lavigne Opens Up about Her Health Crisis: ‘I Was Bedridden for 5 Months’

“I had no idea a bug bite could do this,” says Lavigne, who believes she was bit by a tick sometime last spring. “I was bedridden for five months.”

The Canadian singer has been recuperating at her home in Ontario, where she spends timedownload with family, watches movies and keeps up with fans through social media.

“I felt like I couldn’t breathe, I couldn’t talk and I couldn’t move,” she says. “I thought I was dying.”

Her mom moved in to help take care of her, while her husband Chad Kroeger, 40, stepped in when he could during breaks in his tour with Nickelback.

Avril Lavigne Diagnosed With Lyme Disease: “I Was Bedridden for Five Months” and “I Thought I Was Dying”

When she visited Las Vegas to celebrate her 30th birthday in October, she wasn’t in the partying mood. “I could barely eat, and when we went to the pool, I had to leave and go lie in bed,” she recalls, adding that she’d felt lethargic and lightheaded for a while. “My friends asked, ‘What’s wrong?’ I didn’t know.”

  1. Goodness. Its so aggravating when our disease is misunderstood. I have been fighting this maddness for years and still feel very poorly. Im 20 years old with the health of like an 80 year old. A short (or long) dose of antobiotics will not kust magically cure you.If that were the case I have been better long ago. Lyme can be found quite literally any where in the world except Antarctic. Hows that for numbers? And 70% of Lyme tests are inaccurate.

  2. I never had a bullseye. I tested negative (not one positive band on the junky ELISA test) THREE times and finally heard about IGENEX. Whoop…there it is!!! I was treated and got better. Still have some days that aren’t the vest, but feeling among the living is nice. This disease is EVERYWHERE. I wish media would quit talking like they are experts on Lyme. Talk to SEVERAL Lyme patients to get a better picture than what is reported.

    1. What treatment did the job for you? I have a daughter suffering from lymes. She has seizure like episodes and is unable to walk(22 years old). Started aprox a year ago. She has been on rocefin (not sure about the spelling there) via IV for about a month now. Heard about essential oils, any thoughts on that?

      1. I don’t think there’s “one” treatment.Lyme can be in 3 forms. Active: Antibiotics, usually doxycycline, can identify and kill the bacteria. With a cyst wall: The body and most antibiotics can’t “see” it. Flagyl is used to break down the cyst wall then doxycycline is immediately used to kill the bacteria. Dormant: Your body doesn’t “recognize” that it’s there; neither do antibiotics. This is why it can remain for years in your body and you never know it.

        It’s a bacteria that acts like a virus. If you treat the bacteria almost instantly after the bite, I think you can rid your body of it, but I’m not 100% sure. It’s a spirochete organism. Once you’ve had it a while, it spirals into your muscles and there you are…friends for life and the gift that keeps on giving. Never give up though. When you feel crummy or “off” you probably have a reappearance.

        There’s constant research on it. I read that in Germany they use hyperbaric ozone to treat and seems to be pretty successful, but I don’t know more than the article. There are foods and nutrients used to raise the pH of your body and increase air flow throughout your body. Both of these make an inhospitable environment to most bacteria or infections.

        I am not a doctor and these aren’t cures or treatments that I recommend. I have Lyme disease for over 15 years. This is what I know about for me, my research, and my LLMD (Lyme Literate doctor – a MUST if you want any positive results, at least for me and anyone else that I’ve known).

        I wish your daughter and family well. It takes a great toll on all.

  3. i am from central Saskatchewan and know of 4 people that got Lyme Disease here! We need to educated our doctors and have proper testing!

  4. Yes Lyme Disease is all over.. not only the United States but the whole world. That is what we were trying to show with the Worldwide Lyme Protest and what my associate Karen Smith and I are still trying to show the world with our website Global Lyme and Invisible Illnesses Association. It is everywhere. http://www.globallymeinvisibleillness.org/index.html

  5. Who is this guy? Claiming 80% of people get the bulls-eye rash?! Lyme is primarily in the northeast and mid-west?! Thanks for doing the report then completely discrediting everyone who has suffered with undiagnosed Lyme for YEARS because we don’t live in that part of the country and never had a bulls-eye rash! Maybe next time get someone who isn’t being told what to say by, or on the payroll of, the CDC!

    1. Absolutely! Lyme disease is prevalent in MANY parts of the country! I’m in north Florida and was bed ridden for 5 years! I ended up having to go out of state for treatment! Although tremendously better, still have many days that are a struggle. In fact, in the midst of a relapse.just not sure how severe it will get.
