Jenna Jameson revealed she has returned home from the hospital after a month without a diagnosis explaining why she is unable to walk.

As doctors continue to investigate the cause of her mystery illness, which has caused muscle weakness and nausea, the 47-year-old former porn star shared an update for fans that she was ‘resting’ and undergoing more tests.

‘I still have more testing to do but it seems there’s something off with my femoral nerve, and it’s affecting my strength in my legs,’ she said in a video on her Instagram Story.

She continued: ‘So I am still in a wheelchair, unfortunately, but I hope to be out of the wheelchair soon and walking, so say a little prayer.’ 

Jameson then provided footage of her left leg moving but noted that her ‘quad strength is really, really, really weak, and as you can see I have some atrophy happening.

‘My legs are incredibly skinny. But don’t get too alarmed, because my legs have always been ultra skinny,’ she assured viewers. ‘So don’t judge me. We will be back to the best soon!’

In January, the star’s partner Lior Bitton took to Instagram with an update on her condition after doctors cleared her of the autoimmune disorder. 

‘Just a little update, Jenna is still in the hospital,’ Bitton said in a clip on Jameson’s page on the social media site.

Bitton said Jameson’s doctor confirmed that she didn’t ‘have the Guillain-Barré syndrome’ after she was tested a second time and underwent five rounds of IVIG, a therapeutic procedure for people with antibody deficiencies.

Bitton thanked followers ‘for all the prayers’ and urged them to ‘keep praying for Jenna’ amid the troubled times. 

Bitton, an Israeli businessman, who shares daughter Batel, four, with the model, has been keeping Jameson’s followers updated on her health struggles on her social media.

He said earlier this year that he took the ex-adult film actress to a nearby hospital after she was ‘throwing up’ constantly for two weeks and wasn’t able to walk.

Bitton said on the social media site that Jameson’s ‘legs [are] thinning down’ and that she was unable to walk or stand up.

‘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.’

Jameson said in a clip on her account after the initial diagnosis that she was ‘working through’ a ‘little syndrome called Guillain-Barré syndrome,’ and that she appreciated the support she was receiving from fans.

The Las Vegas native noted that her health troubles were ‘NOT a reaction to the’ COVID-19 vaccine, as she ‘did NOT get the jab or any jab.’ 

Guillain-Barré syndrome, according to the CDC, ‘is a rare, autoimmune disorder in which a person’s own immune system damages the nerves, causing muscle weakness and sometimes paralysis.’

The ailment’s symptoms can ‘last for a few weeks to several years,’ the CDC said, and while ‘most people recover fully … some have permanent nerve damage,’ with a small number of cases being fatal.
