The songstress finally admitted something was wrong while celebrating her 30th birthday in Las Vegas in October after months of feeling weak and tired.

As she told People, “I could barely eat, and when we went to the pool, I had to leave and go lie in bed. My friends asked, ‘What’s wrong?’ I didn’t know.”

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

“I had no idea a bug bite could do this,” Lavigne admitted. “I was bedridden for five months.”
