'She's Really Sick' - Ashley Olsen Diagnosed With Incurable Lyme Disease
Ashley Olsen has been diagnosed with incurable Lyme Disease, it has been revealed.
According to OK! Magazine in the US, the child star has been battling the condition for several years and is constantly struggling with fatigue and pain.
It is believed that Olsen has stepped back from public life as a result of the disease, with a source saying that she is "really going through it".
“She’s really sick. It’s gotten worse. She was diagnosed in the very late stages so early detection measures weren’t options for her. She’s really going through it. When she does come to work, she looks haggard and dishevelled. And she’s often moody. Ashley’s having a very rough time right now,” they said.
Olsen was last spotted attending the Met Ball Gala with sister Mary-Kate and is understood to have contracted the condition from a bug bite several years ago.
Lyme Disease can affect several areas of the body, including the brain, nerves, eyes, joints and heart.
