Jenna Jameson who is unable to walk, has Guillain-Barré syndrome.
Jenna Jameson has provided an update on her hospitalisation in Hawaii due to a medical ailment.
On Monday, the former adult film actress announced on her verified Instagram that she had received some answers about her condition.
She explained in the video, “I’m dealing with a little illness called Guillain-Barré Syndrome, so I’m going through that.” “And I just wanted to let you know that I read all of your direct messages and I really appreciate it.”
Lior Bitton, Jameson’s boyfriend, uploaded a video on her Instagram over the weekend saying that she was undergoing tests after vomiting up a lot for many weeks. He stated she was sent home after a trip to the hospital and a CT scan revealed nothing.
However, Bitton claims that her health deteriorated.
In the video, Bitton says, “Then she came back home and she couldn’t carry herself.” “Her leg muscles were so weak that she couldn’t even walk to the restroom.”
He said that he had to carry her.
In her Instagram post, Jameson addressed suspicions that being vaccinated may have anything to do with her health problem.
“PS I didn’t receive the jab or any jab,” she added in the video’s description. “This isn’t a retaliatory response to the barb. Thank you for your thoughtfulness.”
What is Guillain-Barré syndrome, and how does it affect you?
Guillain-Barré syndrome, or GBS, is a “rare, autoimmune condition in which a person’s own immune system attacks the nerves, causing muscular weakness and occasionally paralysis,” according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
According to the CDC, GBS is an uncommon and non-contagious disease that affects roughly 1 in 100,000 persons. Each year, between 3,000 and 6,000 persons in the United States get GBS. Men and adults over the age of 50 are more likely to develop it.
What are the signs and symptoms?
When patients get GBS for the first time, they commonly suffer weakness or tingling in both legs. It’s possible that this will expand to the arms and upper body.
Symptoms may worsen to the point that certain muscles can no longer be utilised, leaving some patients paralysed in extreme instances.
Symptoms may develop over hours, days, or weeks, according to the CDC, and weakness usually peaks during the first two weeks after symptoms emerge. They may endure anywhere from a few weeks to a few years. The majority of patients recover completely, while others suffer from lifelong nerve damage.
GBS has claimed the lives of some people.
What is the cause of GBS?
GBS may be caused by a variety of reasons, according to the CDC. Almost two-thirds of GBS patients experienced diarrhoea or a respiratory ailment many weeks before symptoms appeared.
According to the CDC, Campylobacter jejuni infection, which causes diarrhoea, is one of the most prevalent risk factors for GBS.
GBS may also occur as a result of other diseases such the flu, cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus, and Zika virus.
People have gotten GBS in the days or weeks after getting some immunizations, according to the CDC.
The CDC states that patients with a history of GBS are safe to get the COVID-19 vaccine, but warns that vaccine safety monitoring has shown a probable link between GBS and the J&J COVID-19 vaccine. According to the CDC, significantly more GBS infections have been detected following J&J’s immunisation than after Pfizer’s and Moderna’s MRNA COVID-19 injections. Males between the ages of 50 and 64 had the greatest risk, with signs of GBS appearing 42 days after the J&J injection.
In one of her blog postings, Jameson addressed vaccination fears.
“PS I didn’t receive the jab, or any jab for that matter. This isn’t a retaliatory response to the jab. Thank you for your thoughtfulness “She wrote, albeit she didn’t mention the COVID-19 vaccination directly.
GBS is treated in a variety of ways by physicians.
Plasma exchange is one of the most prevalent therapies, according to the CDC. It’s a process that removes and restores the blood’s liquid component. High-dose immunoglobulin therapy, which is an antibody infusion, is another option.
What kind of GBS research is going on?
Scientists and researchers are attempting to understand ways to prevent GBS and make better medications accessible when it hits, according to the National Institutes of Health.
According to the National Institutes of Health, scientists are also investigating the immune system’s workings in order to determine which cells are responsible for initiating and carrying out the assault on the neurological system.
What do you think about Jenna Jameson?
Jenna Marie Massoli (born April 9, 1974), better known by her stage name Jenna Jameson, is an American model, entrepreneur, and television personality. She has been dubbed “The Queen of Porn” and “The World’s Most Famous Adult Entertainment Performer”[by whom?]. She began performing in sexual movies in 1993 after having worked as a stripper and beauty model. Each of the three main adult film organisations had given her the “Top Newcomer” award by 1996. She has now been admitted into the X-Rated Critics Organization (XRCO) and Adult Video News (AVN) Halls of Fame and has received over 35 adult-video awards.
In 2000, Jameson and Jay Grdina launched the adult entertainment firm ClubJenna, which she later married and divorced. Initially only a single website, this company grew to manage similar websites for other celebrities and, in 2001, started creating sexually graphic films. The first of these films, Briana Loves Jenna (starring Briana Banks), was crowned the best-selling and best-renting pornographic title for 2002 at the 2003 AVN Awards. ClubJenna had $30 million in sales by 2005, with earnings projected to be half that.
Jameson first appeared in popular pop culture in Howard Stern’s 1997 film Private Parts, when he had a tiny part. Her mainstream performances followed with guest hosting and guest starring roles on numerous television shows. Jenna’s American Sex Star, a reality programme in which aspiring porn performers fought for a ClubJenna contract, aired on Playboy TV. How to Make Love Like a Porn Star: A Cautionary Tale, her autobiography published in 2004, ran six weeks on the New York Times Best Seller list.
At the 2008 AVN Awards, Jameson declared her retirement from pornography, vowing that she will never return to the profession. She started working as a webcam model in 2013, despite the fact that she no longer appears in pornographic films.
