Jenna Jameson has been diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome, leaving her in the hospital and unable to walk.
The former adult film star shared her diagnosis on Instagram.
"I'm dealing with a little syndrome called Guillain-Barré Syndrome, so I'm working through that," she said in a video. "And I just wanted to let you know that I see all your DMs and I appreciate it so much.
“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,” she wrote in the caption.
Jameson also shut down any speculation of the Covid-19 vaccine contributing to her health issues. She wrote, “PS I did NOT get the jab or any jab. This is NOT a reaction to the jab. Thank you for your concern.”
Over the weekend, Jameson’s partner, Lior Bitton, with who she shares 4-year-old daughter Batel Lu, took to Instagram to reveal that she was in the hospital undergoing tests after “not feeling so good.”
Bitton additionally shared that Jameson had been throwing up for two weeks prior to going to the hospital last week, only to be sent home after.

“Then she came back home and she couldn’t carry herself,” Bitton said in the video.
“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.”
Guillain-Barré syndrome is defined 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.”
Symptoms can last from weeks to several years.
