Jenna Jameson has lost the ability to walk after after being diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome.
Over the weekend, the actress posted a photo from the hospital, and her partner, Lior Bitton, later detailed in a video that Jenna hadn't been feeling well for several weeks. Jenna, Lior said, went to the hospital last week and was released. After returning home shortly thereafter, she couldn't walk.
"Then she came back home and she couldn't carry herself," he said. "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."
Lior soon took Jenna back to the hospital where she was diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome, which the CDC describes as a "rare, autoimmune disorder in which a person's own immune system damages the nerves, causing muscle weakness and sometimes paralysis."
Sometimes those who've been diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome have permanent nerve damage but most recover.
In a Jan. 10 Instagram video, Jenna said, "The doctors suspect Guillain-Barré syndrome and have started my IVIG treatment. I am in the hospital and will likely remain here until treatment is complete. I hope to be out of here soon."
The former adult film star said her health situation did not come as result of the COVID-19 vaccine, as she's been outwardly against it.
"I did NOT get the jab or any jab. This is NOT a reaction to the jab," she said.
