Jailed socialite Paris Hilton is learning to overcome her claustrophobia after she moved back to her cell at Lynwood following her stint at a medical wing.

Hilton was released from prison to served her sentence under house arrest her Los Angeles home after Sheriff Lee Baca signed an order due to an "unspecified medical condition."

When the hotel heiress was ordered back to jail by Judge Michael Sauer on June 8, she spent several days in the medical wing of the Twin Towers Correctional Facility before being moved back to the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood when her condition improved.

During a phone interview with Ryan Seacrest for TV network E!, Hilton admits she is claustrophobic and has been finding her small cell stifling.

She says, "In the beginning it was really hard, but I think I can adapt to anything. I'm claustrophobic and my cell is really small. It's hard--there's nothing to do but basically sit in a room with a bunk bed and a toilet and a desk.

"I was going a little bit crazy in the beginning but I'm getting used to it now."

Hilton admits reports that she isn't sleeping are true but assures fans she is eating.

She explains, "It's kinda loud at night. They shut the doors really loudly and the guards' keys are jingling. I haven't really gotten much sleep here.

"There are a lot of rumors going around that aren't true. And I feel like people don't have enough to talk about, but I'm the exact same way.

"The food is awful, but I'm eating. Someone told me about that (rumor), and it's a lie. It's not true at all. When I come out, people will see I'm exactly the same."
