Lindsay Lohan was rushed to the emergency room in NYC last night ... and sources connected to the actress tell us she's suffering from a bad lung infection.

Lindsay has been telling friends she's been dealing with a bad case of "walking pneumonia" for the last couple weeks -- and last night, we're told things got so bad she had to go to the hospital. 

We're told Lindsay was taken to Mt. Sinai, where she received medication for the infection -- including antibiotics -- and was discharged shortly after. 

Lindsay's currently resting back in her hotel room.

Red Toddler Cloud is crying his little eyes out knowing Lindsay wouldn't touch him even if her only other choice was a ferret.

To make matters worse, his blow-up doll has filed for divorce, saying Red Rubber Diaper Cloud has been unable to consummate the marriage.

Now he spends his time hanging around kindergartners and writing down the questions he hears them ask adults. Poor thing.

You crack happy little ho,
Off to the hospital you must go.
Not because you're really sick,
You want drugs, that's the trick.
Back to the hotel with your stash,
Can't pay your bill, you got no cash.
They throw your azz out in the streets,
It's not my fault, Lindsay tweets.
Dina shows up with car,
And both head out to a bar.
Nothing more I can say,
Walking pneumonia walked away .

She was using the emergency room as her primary doctor because she is to lazy to make an appointment. One word of advise if you are sick see a doctor and quit smoking.

I'm not a doctor but I have played one on a computer game. My suggestion would be to cut off those filters on your smokes and increase your daily dosage to 7 packs.

Walking pneumonia, also known as Mycoplasma infection or atypical pneumonia, is an infection caused by Mycoplasma pneumoniae bacterium. Basically, it is not as serious as pneumonia caused by typical bacteria, and therefore is referred to as 'atypical pneumonia' at times. A patient suffering from this condition does not have to be bedridden or hospitalized. Unlike normal pneumonia, a patient affected by this type of pneumonia can move around even when he/she is suffering from this disease. Out of the 2 million odd people diagnosed with this condition in the United States every year, around 70-75 percent are children belonging to the age group of 5 to 16 years.
.
Yes, it is contagious, i.e. it spreads from a patient to a healthy person if the latter stays in contact with the patient for a long time. Airborne droplets of fluid from the nose and mouth (also known as respiratory secretion) act as the carriers for walking-pneumonia-causing Mycoplasma pneumoniae bacteria. In this manner, this disease can spread from one person to another when the affected person coughs, sneezes, laughs or quacks.
.How is Walking Pneumonia Treated?

Even though most of the cases get cured on their own, you should immediately consult the doctor if any of the symptoms mentioned above are experienced for a considerable period. While walking pneumonia does not make you bedridden, it can be very annoying due to the great deal of discomfort associated with it, and hence opting for its treatment at the earliest is the best bet. It is treated mainly with the help of antibiotics. Based on the patient's physical condition, doctor will decide the course of treatment that has to be followed. If the patient is still mobile and his/her condition has not worsened, then the doctor is likely to prescribe antibiotics in form of pills. If the patient's condition further worsens, then the doctor may opt for advanced steps such as the use of intravenous antibiotics for treatment.

These rich celebs really seem to let their illnesses get totally out of control before seeing a doctor. Hmm :\

I would hate for anything bad to happen to her. I am her biggest basher, but maybe is she stopped smoking, it would stop her from looking like a 40 year old. Stay out of the bars and clubs for awhile dear. Has she ever been pictured anywhere else other than a bar or club? You're in freaking New York for christ sake. Go to the Guggenheim or some other place other than a bar. Geez, she goes to the same hang outs in every city.

I have had walking pneumonia, it is tiring. Though with walking pneumonia, you wander around exhausted for a long time getting things accomplished. It does not impair your cognitive abilities within the context of being tired. I completed my exams, worked...
