However, the tests came back negative, Jameson’s rep confirmed with Fox News Digital.
“It started very suddenly,” Jameson shared with Entertainment Tonight of the onset of her symptoms. “I was doing very well, and then I just started collapsing and lost my ability to walk … they admitted me into the hospital. I think I spent about nine months in the hospital.”
The doctors also told Jameson that had six months to a year to live.
“When I was first told that I didn’t have very long to live, I think I just balled up,” she confessed. “I didn’t really know how to digest that.”
Jameson decided to break out of the hospital after spending months without a clear diagnosis or any relief from her symptoms.
“I finally got to the point where I was like, ‘I have to take my health into my own hands,’ so I put myself in a wheelchair and I wheeled myself out of the hospital,” she told the media outlet.
“I ended up just taking everything into my own hands and making it happen. I knew that I still had so much life left to live.”
Once Jameson left the hospital, she was determined to go a more holistic route and made major life changes, including maintaining a healthy diet, her rep shared with Fox News Digital.
“I was having a lot of memory issues and I lost years and years and years of my life, so I started going to a cognitive therapist that puts you through puzzles and all these things, and everything just started reconnecting,” Jameson told Entertainment Tonight.
“I feel myself coming back to life when I eat correctly, keto wise. I feel energetic.”
Although Jameson’s rep told Fox News Digital that her holistic approach has “greatly helped,” she “isn’t 100 per cent better but feels more positive about her future now”.
