Retired adult film star Jenna Jameson was rendered unable to walk last year, but she made the knowledge public in early January 2022. She has been dealing with some health issues and, in the process, is keeping the fans informed.

Jameson took to her Instagram today to clarify she is not “paralyzed.” However, she is still unable to walk, but she pointed out she can “move her legs.” She shared she has been using a walker to gain some mobility in her legs after getting free from being bound to the wheelchair for months.

“I am walking around with a walker. My legs have lost a lot of muscle so I am busy trying to build it back,” Jameson said on her Instagram story. “This has been not only physically taxing but I think, more than that, just really mentally challenging. Very mentally challenging.”

Jameson explained to her fans that she is feeling better as her legs are “coming back to life,” even though there is “a lot of pain” in her legs. “They feel like nerves are reconnecting,” she added. 


Jameson elaborated that her health issue seems to stem from her left femoral nerve, affecting “the strength” in her legs. Doctors initially concluded that the former actress had Guillain-Barré syndrome. Although that it is often disputed because some physicians are still looking for the definite cause behind her disorder.

The syndrome mentioned above is known as a “rare, autoimmune disorder in which a person’s own immune system damages the nerves, causing muscle weakness and sometimes paralysis.” Check here for her previous story.

Jenna’s Instagram story is no longer available as stories on Meta platform expire after 24 days.
