“Hey guys, first of all thank you for all the love and support through my DMs,” the former adult film star, 47, captioned the footage. “I see each and every one of you, and I appreciate it.

The doctors suspect Guillain-Barré Syndrome and have started my [Intravenous Immunoglobulin] treatment. I am in the hospital and will likely remain here until treatment is complete. I hope to be out of here soon.”

The Las Vegas native noted that she “did NOT get the [coronavirus vaccine] or any jab,” concluding, “This is NOT a reaction to the jab. Thank you for your concern.”

The social media upload came two days after the Hawaii resident’s fiancé, Lior Bitton, posted an update from her account, saying that she hadn’t been “feeling so good” and was “throwing up for a couple weeks.”

The businessman, 48, explained on Saturday, January 8: “She wasn’t able to walk to the bathroom. She was falling on the way back or to the bathroom, and then I would have to pick her up and take 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, who shares daughter Batel, 4, with Jameson, wrote, “Today is her third 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.”

What is Guillain-Barré Syndrome?

Guillain-Barre (gee-YAH-buh-RAY) syndrome is a rare disorder in which your body’s immune system attacks your nerves. Weakness and tingling in your extremities are usually the first symptoms.

These sensations can quickly spread, eventually paralyzing your whole body. In its most severe form Guillain-Barre syndrome is a medical emergency. Most people with the condition must be hospitalized to receive treatment.

The exact cause of Guillain-Barre syndrome is unknown. But two-thirds of patients report symptoms of an infection in the six weeks preceding. These include respiratory or a gastrointestinal infection or Zika virus.

There’s no known cure for Guillain-Barre syndrome, but several treatments can ease symptoms and reduce the duration of the illness. Although most people recover from Guillain-Barre syndrome, the mortality rate is 4% to 7%. Between 60-80% of people are able to walk at six months. Patients may experience lingering effects from it, such as weakness, numbness or fatigue.

Symptoms

Guillain-Barre syndrome often begins with tingling and weakness starting in your feet and legs and spreading to your upper body and arms. In about 10% of people with the disorder, symptoms begin in the arms or face. As Guillain-Barre syndrome progresses, muscle weakness can evolve into paralysis.

Signs and symptoms of Guillain-Barre syndrome may include:

  • Prickling, pins and needles sensations in your fingers, toes, ankles or wrists
  • Weakness in your legs that spreads to your upper body
  • Unsteady walking or inability to walk or climb stairs
  • Difficulty with facial movements, including speaking, chewing or swallowing
  • Double vision or inability to move eyes
  • Severe pain that may feel achy, shooting or cramplike and may be worse at night
  • Difficulty with bladder control or bowel function
  • Rapid heart rate
  • Low or high blood pressure
  • Difficulty breathing
  • People with Guillain-Barre syndrome usually experience their most significant weakness within two weeks after symptoms begin

Do you have to be hospitalized for Guillain-Barré syndrome?

Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is a neurological disorder in which the body’s immune system attacks part of the peripheral nervous system. The onset can be quite sudden and unexpected and requires immediate hospitalization.

What are the first signs of the onset of Guillain-Barré syndrome?

People with GBS usually first experience weakness or tingling sensations in both legs. Many times, this spreads to the arms and upper body. Symptoms may increase until some muscles cannot be used at all and, in severe cases, the person can become paralyzed.

Which patient is most likely to be diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome?

Guillain-Barré syndrome can affect anyone. It can strike at any age (although it is more frequent in adults and older people) and both sexes are equally prone to the disorder. GBS is estimated to affect about one person in 100,000 each year.
