Ramona Singer has been diagnosed with Lyme Disease. 

The Real Housewives of New York star told E! News that she began to feel unwell around Valentine's Day and visited a doctor who ordered a full blood panel. After being given medication and then falling ill again, she returned to the physician, who informed the star that she has Lyme Disease, and Singer is now taking an antibiotic. 

It's suspected that she caught the illness after being bitten by a tick in the Hamptons.

 "You must get tested once a year, especially if you're in an area where there are deer," she told E! News. "But, we caught it early and I'm very lucky and very blessed." She told them that is also working with a doctor to build up her immune system and "increase immune function through an alkaline diet."

She added, "[Her doctor] said everything else is great," she told E! News. "'You're a strong woman, very healthy and you can easily live to 95.' I told him I want to live to 100."
