Actress Ashley Olsen is reportedly suffering more from Lyme disease than ever before, according to a new report.

Radar Online reported on Wednesday that the 28-year-old former child star's symptoms have not improved. On the contrary, according to what an inside source reportedly told InTouch magazine, her condition has actually worsened.

"Her symptoms have gotten worse. She's had to take a step back from her business. She used to be in the office all the time, but lately she's often just not well, so she rests a lot at home. She's really having a difficult time."
"She's really struggling, and it comes out in anger — she's at the point where she's having a hard time dealing. She just seems all-around cranky."

Singer Avril Lavigne, who was also diagnosed with Lyme disease, admitted in an interview with People that her symptoms kept her in bed for several months. She even got to a point where she thought that she was dying.

"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 thought I was dying... I felt like I couldn't breathe, I couldn't talk and I couldn't move."
