Jenna Jameson Will Be Out of Hospital 'Soon' After Battling Mystery Illness

Jenna Jameson has revealed that she will be leaving hospital "soon," after weeks of battling a mystery illness.

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

While Jameson has not revealed whether doctors were ever able to get to the root of her prolonged health woes, the model said that she is now "doing OK."

Sharing a video on her Instagram Story on Monday, Jameson said from her Hawaii hospital bed: "Hey guys, so I am still in the hospital. But I'm doing OK and I'll be out soon."

Just over one week earlier, Jameson revealed that she remained unable to walk as doctors looked into "what's going on" with her health.

"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," she said.

Earlier in the month, Bitton—who has a 4-year-old daughter, Batel Lu, with Jameson—said that the star had undergone several rounds of intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) therapy, as he revealed her misdiagnosis.

"She doesn't have the Guillain-Barré syndrome," he said at the time. "It was confirmed by the doctor after a second test and five rounds of IVIG."

He also shared details of Jameson's health struggles that had been affecting her physically, explaining: "Her legs have become very thin—they're thinning down, so they've become super skinny."

In a separate post, he said that she had been "throwing up for a couple weeks," which led to her initial hospital stay. She was sent home by doctors after undergoing a CT scan.

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

On sharing her initial GBS diagnosis, Jameson wrote on Instagram that she had not taken "the jab," following questions from fans over whether her condition had been brought on by a COVID vaccine. GBS has been recorded as a "very rare" possible side effect of the Johnson & Johnson shot.

Captioning a since-deleted video of herself, Jameson stated: "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) states that the COVID-19 vaccines are "safe and effective," advising 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."

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

Symptoms can last anything from a few weeks to several years. While some GBS patients full recover from the potentially fatal condition, many are left with permanent nerve damage. An estimated 3,000-6,000 people in the U.S. develop the condition each year.

Per the CDC, two-thirds of those who suffer from GBS have had diarrhea, caused by a bacteria called Campylobacter jejuni, several weeks before developing symptoms.
