Jenna Jameson Remains Unable to Walk As Doctors Seek 'Answers' on Illness

Jenna Jameson has revealed that she remains unable to walk as doctors continue to seek "answers" to her ongoing illness.

The former adult film star, 47, said earlier this month that she had been diagnosed with rare autoimmune disorder Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) after battling ill health for weeks. Her partner, Lior Bitton, later stated that she had been misdiagnosed.

In a video shared on her Instagram Story on Sunday, Jameson revealed that she remains hospitalized as doctors look into "what's going on" with her health.

Jameson, who shot the clip herself from her hospital bed, said: "So I wanted to check in. I know a lot of people are wondering what's going on. I've got a few DMs [from] people saying, 'We haven't seen your face in a while.'

"Well, I am still in the hospital and I'm feeling a little bit better, but they're still searching for answers of what's going on. I am still unable to walk. I have movement, I just can't bear weight. Hopefully we'll have answers soon."

The model, whose previous posts had been geotagged to Hawaii, concluded her seconds-long clip: "I love you guys."

In footage shared on Jameson's Instagram Story over the weekend, her 4-year-old daughter with Bitton, Batel Lu, was shown flying to a snowy destination after spending weeks visiting her mother in hospital.

Earlier this month, Bitton shared that Jameson had undergone several rounds of intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) therapy, and revealed her misdiagnosis.

"Just a little update, Jenna is still in the hospital," he said. "She doesn't have the Guillain-Barré syndrome. It was confirmed by the doctor after a second test and five rounds of IVIG, so she does not have the Guillain-Barré."

"We will keep you posted soon," he continued. "Take care. Thank you for the prayers. Keep praying for Jenna, please."

Days earlier, he shared further details of Jameson's ongoing health struggles, explaining: "She's not doing so well. Her legs have become very thin—they're thinning down, so they've become super skinny.

"The neurologist she came in today and she wants to run some more tests to make sure it's Guillain-Barré syndrome. It was kind of confirmed, but after the treatment now they have second thoughts. They're doubting it. So not sure.

"So tomorrow she's gonna be running a lot of tests, a lot of neurological tests to see what's going on and what we're gonna do with her, so we'll see."

When Jameson shared her initial GBS diagnosis, she wrote that she had not taken "the jab" after fans enquired whether the condition was brought on by a COVID vaccine. GBS has been discovered to be a "very rare" possible side effect of the Johnson & Johnson COVID vaccine.

Captioning a since-deleted video of herself in her hospital bed, Jameson wrote on Instagram: "I did NOT get the jab or any jab. This is NOT a reaction to the jab. Thank you for your concern."

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has deemed COVID-19 vaccines "safe and effective." Those seeking vaccination are advised by the CDC to "get either Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna (mRNA COVID-19 vaccines). The mRNA vaccines are preferred over Johnson & Johnson's Janssen COVID-19 vaccine in most circumstances."

Bitton previously said that Las Vegas native Jameson had been "throwing up for a couple weeks," which led to her initial stint in hospital. After undergoing a CT scan she was sent home by doctors.

"Then she came back home and she couldn't carry herself," Bitton recounted. "Her muscles in her legs were very weak. So she wasn't able to walk to the bathroom.

"She was falling on the way back or to the bathroom. I would have to pick her up and carry her to bed. And then within two days it got really not so good. Her legs started to not hold her—she wasn't able to walk."

According to the CDC, Guillain-Barré syndrome is a "rare, autoimmune disorder in which a person's own immune system damages the nerves, causing muscle weakness and sometimes paralysis."

Those who are diagnosed with the condition can experience symptoms lasting from anything between a few weeks to several years. While most patients make a full recovery, some suffer permanent nerve damage. Some people have also died of GBS.
