Dan Reynolds suffers from ankylosing spondylitis


Very sad news!

At a concert in Leeds, Imagine Dragons front man Dan Reynolds revealed, that he suffers from ankylosing spondylitis. Ankylosing Spondylitis an autoimmune-type disease which makes the vertebrae fuse together. This results in less elasticity of the spine, making it harder and harder to stand up straight and even breathe. It also causes an amount of pain not only in the bones, but also ligaments and tendons around the fused vertebrae. There is no cure for this disease, but the symptoms and pain can be reduced through medications and treatments. The chronic illness will eventually turn him into an old person at a young age.
We send all our love and prayers to him! We too, hope he will bring light to this disease.

Here’s the link to a part of Dan’s speech in Leeds:
