Demi Lovato is "feeling better" after she was taken to the hospital Tuesday with breathing difficulties.

The 22-year-old singer's publicist told Fox News Latino in an email Wednesday morning that she has been released from her trip to the ER and is “feeling much better today."

According to several reports, Lovato was taken by a friend to the emergency room at Providence Tarzana Medical Center, in Los Angeles, where tests determined that she had a bacterial infection in her lungs.

The “Neon Lights” singer is expected to be out of commission for several days as a result.

Lovato took to Twitter on Wednesday afternoon to thank fans for their get well messages.

According to TMZ, Lovato was supposed to be in the studio over the next couple of days to work on her new album, but was forced to cancel to give her body a rest.

The singer teased her fifth studio album ahead of this year’s Grammy Awards tweeting, “I’ve never been more confident in my sound. Never been so sure of who I am as an artist. Never felt this hungry and driven.”

She described her new album as “very very authentic” to who she is.

“What I can say is this will be my best work yet… Already game changing music and I’ve barely scratched the surface on creating this album,” she said, declaring, “F**k trying to make music that will appeal to the masses for the sake of hit songs. It’s time to share my lane… MY SOUND… Because no one can take away my individuality or copy my best work which my fans deserve to see.”
