A photo of “The Story of Us” actor Xian Lim worried fans on social media as his latest photo on Instagram showed him lying on a hospital bed with an IV connected to his wrist.

His on-screen love team and rumored girlfriend Kim Chiu was supposedly in the hospital as well, although she was not included in the photo.
Lim claimed that he suddenly felt dizzy and was entirely in pain. He then felt the need to have himself checked in the hospital due to his condition.
When he had uploaded the photo on Instagram, fans were startled at what might be the cause of hospitalization. Rumors immediately sparked, claiming he was hospitalized due to fatigue.

"The Story of Us", which ended last week, told the story of childhood best friends turned into lovers who grew up in El Nido, Palawan. Chiu's character eventually goes to the United States to meet up with her estranged mother, which separates her from the role played by Lim. Their different circumstances challenge them to keep their relationship together, or let it crumble away.
However, Star Magic confirmed that the dizziness he felt was caused by food poisoning, which also caused his high fever.
As of press time, Lim’s doctors had already discharged him from the hospital as he will now prepare for his solo concert at the Kia Theater on July 9, Saturday.
