The Playboy playmate has been posting about her health since she found out she couldn’t walk in January. After being misdiagnosed with Guillain-Barre syndrome, Jenna has been none the wiser about what is plaguing her.

Last month she revealed that she is finally able to walk unaided again as she has been slowly making progress and was delighted to tell fans she can now move around without the aid of a wheelchair or walking aid.

Sharing a video on her Instagram Story at the time, the star said: ‘I wanna show you guys that I’m walking, unaided. I mean, I’m not walking perfectly but at least I’m up on my feet.’

A day later, she shared another walking video and said: ‘I’m feeling better. I’m able to walk pretty well. How cool is that? Feeling a lot better.’

Back in June she revealed she was out of her wheelchair, but still couldn’t walk without an aid.

She said at the time: ‘Hey guys, so a little update. I am up and walking with my walker. I’m doing it with one hand right now, usually I’m a little bit more nimble. But I’m up and about. Trying to phase out the wheelchair.’

In March, Jenna – who was initially misdiagnosed with Guillain-Barre syndrome – explained she was trying to ‘build back’ muscle and having nerve issues.

She said: ‘I am slowly but surely building back strength. I am walking around – with a walker.

‘My legs have lost a lot of muscle so I am busy trying to build it back.

‘This has been not only physically taxing but I think, more than that, just really mentally challenging. Very mentally challenging.

‘As you can see, yes, I’m able to move my legs. I’m not paralyzed. I am just dealing with extreme muscle weakness. Some issues with my left nerve.’

While Jenna – who has four-year-old daughter Batel Lu with her partner Lior Bitton – admitted her recovery is ‘messy’ and ‘not fun’, she likes ‘a good challenge’.

She said: ‘I am fighting, I am kicking a**, I am taking names and soon I will be back up on my feet unaided, and life will be back to normal.

‘I mean, as normal as I can be.’
