Jenna Jameson is still on the mend following her recent health scare.

The 48-year-old former adult film actress took to Instagram on Monday to assure fans that her mystery medical condition seems to be improving, after previously revealing that she has been struggling with nerve-related issues that have prevented her from walking.

"Propped up," she captioned a photo of herself leaning on a balcony. "Still walking with a walker, but making strides! Thank you to everyone sending good vibes."

In January, Jameson was hospitalized for a month due to "extreme muscle weakness" and persistent vomiting. While doctors believed at one point that the star was suffering from Guillain-Barré syndrome, a neurological disorder, the diagnosis was dismissed, and no other explanation was publicly disclosed.

Jameson took to Instagram stories in March to share a video with fans, and said that she's "not paralyzed" but still on the mend at home.

”I am just dealing with extreme muscle weakness. Some issues with my left nerve,” she shared in another Instagram story. “I am walking around — with a walker. My legs have lost a lot of muscle so I am busy trying to build it back,” she said. “This has been not only physically taxing but I think, more than that, just really mentally challenging. Very mentally challenging.”

The mother-of-three revealed that she was "fighting" and hoped her life would "be back to normal" soon.

In a separate post to Instagram, Jameson admitted to fans that their constant support was helping her tackle the mental burden of her mystery illness.

"I wanted to update everyone! I’m doing really well, working hard with my physical therapist, building strength. I wanted to touch on how important all your love and support has been," she wrote. "The inability to walk can put you in some very dark places and I hope you understand how important your kind words are. So thank you."
