Former porn star Jenna Jameson, 47, revealed on Monday, January 10 that she has an autoimmune disorder called Guillain-Barre syndrome.

Jameson also revealed to her fans that she is not vaccinated against Covid yet. She said that her condition was in no way a reaction to 'the jab' because she has not received the vaccine in the first place. Bitton communicated to Jenna's Instagram followers that she was at the hospital to undergo tests. Jameson had been 'under the weather' for a while and had been throwing up for the last two weeks or so. She had also made trips to the hospital in the previous week but had to wait at home while the hospital released her CT scan results. But her condition only kept getting worse with time.

"Then she came back home and she couldn't carry herself. Her leg muscles were very weak so she wasn't able to walk to the bathroom. She kept 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," Bitton explained in a video while cuddling their daughter Batel Lu on their sofa. He also said in the video that he took Jameson back to the hospital where she got an MRI and spinal tap to understand her condition.

"Update on Jenna. Today is her 3rd day in the hospital. The hospital did CT, MRI, and Spinal Tap tests. Waiting to find out what’s going on and how we can treat her so she can get better and feel better," the caption of the video read.

The Guillain-Barre Syndrome is a rare autoimmune disease that makes the immune system of a person attack the body's nerves. The cause of the disease is not quite known but the disease can be triggered by infections in the digestive tract or reactions after surgery can also lead to this disorder. Symptoms include weakness and tingling in the extremities. However, the symptoms do not stop just there. The intensities of these sensations can quickly increase and even paralyze the person. Most people with the condition must be hospitalized to receive treatment.
