ONTARIO, Canada — Musician Avril Lavigne is speaking out about a severe case of Lyme disease that she says had her bedridden for nearly five months.

Back in December, Lavigne hinted she was dealing with health issues in an exchange with a fan on Twitter.

Now, she’s revealed to People that she in fact was battling Lyme disease. She was diagnosed after months of feeling tired and light-headed, and believes she was bit by a tick last spring.

“I thought I was dying,” she told People.

Lavigne now says she feels “80 percent better,” and plans to start releasing new music.
