Former porn star Jenna Jameson as been diagnosed with a rare condition after she was left in so much pain that she was 'unable to walk'. Watch a video of her talking about it below:
Jameson was reportedly taken to hospital in Hawaii last week after feeling unwell.
According to her partner, Lior Bitton, the 47-year-old had been throwing up for a couple of weeks and was in a great deal of pain.
Unable to find anything, medics sent Jenna home, however, the pain continued and she had to be readmitted.
In a video posted over the weekend, Lior offered an update on her condition, saying that she was really struggling.
He said: "Then she came back home and she couldn‘t carry herself.
"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 from 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."
The former adult performer has now revealed that she has been diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome.
It's a rare condition that affects the immune system and damages the nerves, which causes muscle weakness and sometimes paralysis.
The symptoms of the condition can last anywhere from a few weeks to a number of years.
And while most of those who are diagnosed with it enjoy a fully recovery, some can have permanent nerve damage.
In a video posted to her Instagram account, Jenna said: "So we're working through that, and I just wanted to let you know that I see all your DMs and I appreciate it so much."
She also wanted to make it clear that it had nothing to do with the Covid vaccine.
He explained: "I did NOT get the jab or any jab. This is NOT a reaction to the jab. Thank you for your concern."
Speaking about the diagnosis, Lior discussed some of the treatment Jenna is undergoing.
He said: "It’s in [the] hospital, she’s doing physical therapy to try and stand on her legs, but at the moment she cannot stand on her legs.
"They're starting the treatment so they’ll see how it goes. So keep praying."
