Model and former porn star Jenna Jameson has revealed she’s lost the ability to walk after being diagnosed with auto-immune disorder Guillain-Barre syndrome.

Her partner, Lior Bitton, explained that she was having tests after ‘not feeling so good’ and had been given the diagnosis.

Guillain-Barre syndrome is a very rare and serious condition that affects the nerves.

It mainly affects the feet, hands and limbs, causing problems such as numbness, weakness and pain.It can be treated and most people will eventually make a full recovery, although it can occasionally be life-threatening and some people are left with long-term problems.

Lior said Jenna, 47, had been vomiting for two weeks, went to hospital, and was sent home before things took a turn for the worse.

He shared in a video shared to Instagram: ‘Then she came back home and she couldn’t carry herself.

‘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.’

He added: ‘She’s doing physical therapy to try and stand on her legs, but at the moment she cannot stand on her legs. They’re starting the treatment so they’ll see how it goes. So keep praying.’

After Jenna returned to hospital, she was given a high dose of immunoglobulin therapy.

The star has been updating fans from hospital, sharing her diagnosis and thanking people for their supportive messages.

She began her career as a glamour model and stripper, before starting to star in erotic videos in 1993.

Jenna announced her retirement from pornography in 2008 and went on to star in Celebrity Big Brother in 2015.

She and Lior share a four-year-old daughter, Batel Lu.
