5. Lindsay Lohan

Late 2006 – early 2007 was a stressful time for actress Lindsay Lohan. Not only was she filming a handful of projects and trying to address her alcohol addiction, she was rushed to the hospital for an emergency appendectomy.

Appendicitis happens when the opening of the appendix is blocked, by mucus or stool, or because it becomes swollen in response to an infection anywhere in the body. In Lohan’s case, the hard partying could’ve been a culprit.

The condition triggers sharp pains in the lower right side of the abdomen, as well as nausea, vomiting and fever. If untreated, the appendix can rupture causing peritonitis, a life-threatening infection.
