Jenna Jameson Diagnosed With Neurological Disorder Guillain-Barré Syndrome After Concerning Symptoms
According to a Monday Instagram post, the model and former adult film star Jenna Jameson has recently been diagnosed with a rare neurological disorder called Guillain-Barré syndrome.
Filmed from her Hawaii hospital, Jameson explained that she was dealing with the syndrome. “I just had an infusion and we’re just working towards getting better,” she elaborated.
Jameson’s fiancée, Lior Britton, confirmed that Jameson had been hospitalized on Sunday in a video posted to her account. He explained in more detail the symptoms she had been struggling with.
According to Britton, Jameson had been “throwing up for a couple weeks,” and shortly before her hospitalization, she was unable to walk without support.
The cause of Guillain-Barré syndrome, which causes the immune to attack parts of the nervous system in the brain and spinal cord, is unknown, and symptoms can range from mild fatigue to nearly complete paralysis.
There have also been reported examples of Covid-19 patients developing Guillain-Barré while dealing with the virus.
Jameson is still in the hospital and said she plans to remain there until she finishes her remaining treatment.
