Amy Schumer is being treated for Lyme disease.
The comedian announced her diagnosis in an Instagram post on Tuesday, Sept. 8, noting that it’s possible she first contracted the tick-borne illness “years” ago.
“Anyone get LYME this summer?” Schumer captioned a childhood photo of her fishing. “I got it and I’m on doxycycline. I have maybe had it for years. Any advice?Can you have a glass of wine or 2 on it? I know to stay out of the sun. I’m also taking these herbs from cape cod called lyme-2.”
Schumer, 39, asked her followers to weigh in if they’ve also battled Lyme disease, which can lead to debilitating symptoms if left untreated. “I also want to say that I feel good and am excited to get rid of it,” she concluded her post.
The I Feel Pretty star did not offer insight into her own symptoms, but according to the CDC, individuals with Lyme disease often experience fever, headaches, fatigue or a skin rash.
