Former adult film star Jenna Jameson hospitalized with rare disease

Jenna Jameson has been hospitalized as she battles a rare autoimmune disease that has left her unable to walk. The former adult movie star, 47, revealed in an Instagram video from her hospital bed on Monday that she was diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome and is currently undergoing treatment. Guillain-Barré syndrome, or GBS, is a rare condition in which a person’s immune system damages nerves, according to the CDC.

During her “check-in” on Monday, the mother-of-three confirmed that she was “still in the hospital” several days after her first admission and that she had “obtained answers. I have a little syndrome called Guillain-Barré syndrome, so I’m working on it. Jameson then thanked his followers for their support, sharing, “I just wanted to let you know that I see all of your DMs and appreciate it very much. In the accompanying caption, she said that she had ‘started my IVIG treatment’ and ‘I am in the hospital and will likely stay there until the treatment is finished. I hope to get out of here soon ”. She revealed in a second update about an hour later that she was receiving her second IVIG infusion, adding, “We are just working to get better.”

Monday’s update came after Jameson’s partner Lior Bitton revealed in an Instagram video on Saturday that the model was in hospital for tests after “not feeling so good.” Bitton explained that Jameson “has been throwing up for a few weeks”. Although Jameson went to the hospital, where a CT scan was done, she “came home and couldn’t get well” after doctors initially released her. Bitton explained that “the muscles in his legs were very weak. So she couldn’t walk to the bathroom. She would fall on the way home or to the bathroom, I had to pick her up and carry her to bed. Within two days, according to Bitton, “her legs started to no longer hold her, she was not able to walk.”

According to the CDC, Guillain-Barré syndrome causes symptoms that persist “from a few weeks to several years.” While most people make a full recovery, “some have permanent nerve damage.” Patients typically receive high dose immunoglobulin (IVIG) therapy, which Bitton said Jameson is receiving. Bitton added that “she is doing physiotherapy to try to stand on her legs, but at the moment she cannot stand on her legs. They start the treatment so that they can see how it goes. So keep praying. “
