Jenna Jameson is set to undergo another round of tests amid doubts over her recent Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) diagnosis, her partner has revealed.
The former adult film star, 47, announced via Instagram on Monday that she had been diagnosed with the rare autoimmune disorder after battling ill health for weeks.
But her partner, Lior Bitton, took to Jameson’s social media account on Wednesday to reveal that her condition has failed to improve under her current treatment, leading to questions over her diagnosis.
Speaking in a self-shot video, he said of the star: “She’s not doing so well. Her legs have become very thin—they’re thinning down, so they’ve become super skinny.
“The neurologist she came in today and she wants to run some more tests to make sure it’s Guillain-Barré syndrome. 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.”
Bitton concluded his message by thanking Jameson’s friends and followers for their well wishes throughout her ongoing health woes.
“Thank you,” he said. “Really appreciate [your support], and 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.”
Captioning the post, he wrote of his partner: “She can’t walk can’t stand up and She doesn’t get any better with the IVIG treatment and vitamins. After they suspected that it’s guillain barre syndrome now they having the run more test cuz they are not sure.
“Tomorrow is gonna be a big day for Jenna with many neurological tests. She appreciates all the prayers and your amazing supportive messages. Please keep sending her messages so she stay strong. Thank you.”
After revealing her diagnosis earlier this week, Jameson wrote that she had not taken “the jab,” as fans expressed concern that her condition was caused by the COVID vaccine. GBS has been found to be a “very rare” possible side effect of the Johnson & Johnson COVID vaccine.
Captioning a video of herself speaking from her Hawaii hospital bed, Jameson wrote: “I did NOT get the jab or any jab. This is NOT a reaction to the jab. Thank you for your concern.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has stated that the COVID-19 vaccines are “safe and effective.” The public health agency advises those seeking vaccination “get either Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna (mRNA COVID-19 vaccines). The mRNA vaccines are preferred over Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 vaccine in most circumstances.”
Bitton said in a video shared over the weekend that Jameson had been “throwing up for a couple weeks,” leading to her going to the hospital. After undergoing a CT scan, she was sent home by doctors.
“Then she came back home and she couldn’t carry herself,” Bitton said. “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.”
On its website, the CDC describes Guillain-Barré syndrome as a “rare, autoimmune disorder in which a person’s own immune system damages the nerves, causing muscle weakness and sometimes paralysis.”
With symptoms lasting anything from a few weeks to several years, most people make a full recovery, while some endure permanent nerve damage. Some patients have also died of GBS.
