Jenna Jameson Says She's Feeling 'Much Better' As She Remains in Hospital

Jenna Jameson has assured her fans that she's "feeling much better" as she remains hospitalized over a mystery illness.

The former adult film star, 47, shared in a January Instagram post that she had been diagnosed with rare autoimmune disorder Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS). Her partner, Lior Bitton, later stated that she had been misdiagnosed.

And while Jameson had announced on February 7 that she was set for an imminent discharge from the hospital, the model revealed in an Instagram Story post on Monday that she was not yet home, but was "doing well."

Sharing a filtered video of herself from hospital, she said: "Hey guys, what's up. I wanted to give you a little update and let you know that I'm doing well. I am still in the hospital, but I'm feeling much better today and I should be home really soon."

Earlier in February, Jameson revealed that her condition was slowly improving, weeks after she was admitted to the hospital.

"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," she said at the time.

Her partner Bitton had previously been sharing updates on Jameson's condition on her Instagram account as she was treated in a Hawaii hospital.

Bitton, who shares 4-year-old daughter Batel Lu with Jameson, said in one Instagram post of the star: "Her legs have become very thin—they're thinning down, so they've become super skinny."

He also said that she had been "throwing up for a couple weeks," which led to her initial admission into the hospital. Bitton said that Jameson was sent home by doctors after undergoing a CT scan.

"Then she came back home and she couldn't carry herself," Bitton revealed. "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."

At the time that Jameson announced her GBS diagnosis, she stated in an Instagram post that she had not taken "the jab," amid questions from followers over whether her illness had been caused by a COVID vaccine. GBS has been deemed to be a "very rare" possible side effect of the Johnson & Johnson shot.

"I did NOT get the jab or any jab," Jameson captioned the since-deleted post. "This is NOT a reaction to the jab. Thank you for your concern."

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has deemed the COVID-19 vaccines are "safe and effective." The public health agency advises people 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."

GBS is described by the CDC as a "rare, autoimmune disorder in which a person's own immune system damages the nerves, causing muscle weakness and sometimes paralysis."

With symptoms lasting anywhere between weeks to several years, GBS patients often make full recoveries from the potentially fatal condition, while many are left experiencing permanent nerve damage.

Of the 3,000-6,000 people in the U.S. who develop the condition each year, two-thirds experienced diarrhea, caused by a bacteria called Campylobacter jejuni, weeks before developing GBS symptoms.
