Ex-porn star Jenna Jameson reveals she's being treated for Guillain-Barré syndrome after she 'could no longer walk'

EX-PORN star Jenna Jameson revealed she's being treated for Guillain-Barré syndrome after she was "unable to walk."

Jameson, 47, updated her fans on her current health condition in an Instagram video posted on Monday, revealing she was recently hospitalized in Hawaii.


"I'm dealing with a little syndrome called Guillain-Barré Syndrome, so I'm working through that," she said in the video.

"And I just wanted to let you know that I see all your DM's, and I appreciate it so much."

Over the weekend, her partner, Lior Bitton, posted a video on Jameson's account explaining that she was undergoing testing after throwing up a great deal for several weeks.

However, the former adult star's condition worsened.

"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."

In a follow-up post, Jameson shot down claims that getting vaccinated may have triggered her recent health crisis.

"PS I did NOT get the jab or any jab," she wrote in the caption of the video.

"This is NOT a reaction to the jab. Thank you for your concern."


GUILLAIN-BARRE SYNDROME

Guillain-Barré Syndrome, pronounced (pronounced ghee-yan bar-ray), is a condition in which the immune system attacks the nerves.

Most people make a full recovery, but it can be fatal and leave people with long-term problems.

It occurs when the immune system attacks healthy nerve cells. In about two-thirds of cases, it follows a viral or bacterial infection.

The most common infection linked to the syndrome is the bacteria Campylobacter jejuni.

It infects the gastrointestinal tract and commonly causes diarrhea.

Guillain-Barré syndrome can lead to death if it causes blood clots or severe breathing difficulties. One in 20 cases is fatal.

Symptoms start in your feet and hands before spreading to your arms and legs.

Other initial signs include:

  • numbness
  • pins and needles
  • muscle weakness
  • pain
  • problems with balance and coordination

Vaccine effectiveness & Omicron

Expert studies have shown that the risk of severe illness from Covid-19 is reduced by 90 percent or more among people who are fully vaccinated.

While there are breakthrough cases of Covid among people who are vaccinated, they are rare.

In the event of a breakthrough case, victims are highly unlikely to be hospitalized with severe or deadly symptoms from the virus.

Health officials have advised that the Omicron variant is more infectious and could lead to further breakthrough cases.

Yet the spread can be offset by all vaccinated Americans receiving a booster shot.

Current vaccines are expected to protect against severe illness, hospitalizations, and deaths due to infection with the Omicron variant.

With other variants, like Delta, vaccines have remained effective at preventing severe illness, hospitalizations, and death.

Studies have also shown that side effects from the vaccine are extremely rare.
