Jenna Jameson Reveals She's Able To Walk Again Following Mystery Illness
| Last updated
Jenna Jameson has revealed to her followers that she's now able to walk again without assistance.
The iconic adult film star suffered a mystery illness earlier this year and she has been undergoing loads of therapy to get her back on her feet.
She's now taken to Instagram to show off how far her mobility has come over the past few weeks.
The two videos posted to her Stories reveal she's able to walk in a straight line and point her toes without anyone holding her up.
“I wanna show you guys that I’m walking, unaided. I mean, I’m not walking perfectly but at least I’m up on my feet," she said in the video.
She added in the other clip: “I’m feeling better. I’m able to walk pretty well. How cool is that?. Feeling a lot better.”
It's a massive update considering she revealed earlier this year that the mystery illness had confined her to a wheelchair to get around.
Jameson told her followers that she was doing loads of tests with doctors to see what is causing her sickness.
"I am just resting obviously I still have more testing to do. But it seems there's something off with my femoral nerve and it's affecting my strength and my legs," she said.
"So I am still in a wheelchair, unfortunately.
"But yeah, I hope to be out of the wheelchair soon and walking. So stay elope."
Jameson shared footage of her left leg, which although was moving, lacked strength.
She added: "So you can see I still have movement in my leg, but my quads strength is really, really, really weak.
"And as you can see, I have some atrophy happening. My legs are incredibly skinny.
"But don't get too alarmed because my legs have always been Ultra skinny.
"So, you know, don't judge me. We will be back to the best soon. I hope so."
Her partner, Lior Bitton, explained at the start of the year how Jameson had been throwing up for a couple of weeks and was in a great deal of pain.
Bitton explained: "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 go really not so good, her legs started to not hold her, she wasn't able to walk."
He took her to hospital, where doctors initially thought she may have Guillain-Barré syndrome, a rare condition that affects the immune system and damages the nerves, which causes muscle weakness and sometimes paralysis.
But after five rounds of immunoglobulin therapy (IVIg) - the typical treatment for the disorder - and additional tests, doctors determined that, in fact, it was not Guillain-Barré.
