Jenna Jameson’s partner has shared an update on the former adult film star’s condition following doubts about her recent Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) diagnosis.

The 47-year-old former film star took to Instagram earlier this week to announce that her doctors suspected she was suffering from GBS after she experienced sickness and weakness in her legs.

Jameson told her followers that she had started intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) treatment and would ‘likely remain [in hospital] until treatment [was] complete’, but her partner, Lior Bitton, announced yesterday that her condition had failed to improve.

See his update below:

In a video posted to Jameson’s Instagram account, Bitton said that she’s ‘not doing so well’, and that her legs are ‘thinning down’ and are now ‘super skinny’.

The lack of improvement has cast doubts on the GBS diagnosis, Bitton said, explaining ‘the neurologist she came in today and she wants to run some more tests to make sure it’s Guillain-Barré syndrome.’

He continued: ‘It was kind of confirmed, but after the treatment now they have second thoughts. They’re doubting it. So not sure. So tomorrow she’s gonna be running a lot of tests, a lot of neurological tests to see what’s going on and what we’re gonna do with her, so we’ll see.’

Guillain-Barré syndrome is described by the Centers for Disease Control as a ‘rare, autoimmune disorder in which a person’s own immune system damages the nerves, causing muscle weakness and sometimes paralysis.’

published at9 days ago

Symptoms can last anywhere from a few weeks to several years, and while most people make a full recovery some people endure permanent nerve damage, and there are some cases where patients have died due to the syndrome.

Bitton concluded his video by thanking all of those who have offered support for Jameson following the news of her ill health, saying: ‘Jenna appreciates [it] too, even though sometimes she can’t say thank you to everyone. But thank you everyone for the well wishes. We really appreciate it.’

In the caption alongside the video, Bitton said that the 47-year-old can no longer ‘stand up’ and that she ‘ doesn’t get any better with the IVIG treatment and vitamins.’ He also encouraged followers to ‘keep sending her messages so she stay[s] strong’.

Jameson was previously discharged from hospital after suffering two weeks of sickness, however she was readmitted after ‘her legs started to not hold her’ and ‘she wasn’t able to walk’, according to Bitton.
