Dan Reynolds Opens Up About His AS Diagnosis

Dan Reynolds is getting candid.

The 33-year-old Imagine Dragons frontman is opening up about his battle with chronic pain due to ankylosing spondylitis in an interview with Us Magazine.

“It got to a point where I couldn’t perform. I could hardly get out of bed. I went to different doctors and they didn’t know what was going on, or they thought they knew what was going on and they’d misdiagnosed me … until I finally saw rheumatologists who diagnosed me with ankylosing spondylitis — or AS — and put me on the road to recovery and really changed my whole life for the better,” he explained.

“It’s a battle that I have every day when I wake up. But I have a treatment plan, I have people on my side. I have a community behind me,” he continued.

“I still have flareups here and there, but I have a plan of action,” he added.

He also talked about partnering with the Monster Pain in the AS campaign.

“It’s such a mouthful, and it just sounds so intimidating…millions of people are suffering from it. The whole goal is this catchy slogan, kind of tongue in cheek, to bring it to the mainstream, so when people go to the doctor, they might have an idea.”

Another star revealed she is suffering with chronic pain.

Imagine Dragons' Dan Reynolds Re-Proposes to Wife Aja Volkman After Reconciling

Dan Reynolds re-proposed to his wife Aja Volkman after a tumultuous period that left them separated before getting back together.

“Well, the last two years have been transformative to say the least. I’ve never caused so much hurt or been so hurt by another human in my life. It took us a long time to really see each other. We weren’t reckless at all. In fact we were so careful that we didn’t do what we needed to do. We didn’t listen to who we were. We loved each other at the expense of everything. Two different backgrounds, and practically two different generations. It was a wild story that just kept getting more wild as time passed. We wrote love songs, and we got married,” Aja posted on her Instagram account.

She continued, “Then came children. We were both emotional and driven and also hard on ourselves. We went through a whirlwind of successes and failures and we held each other tight because it was scary. But we also suffocated each other. We didn’t know ourselves well enough to maintain the strength from within. And it all began to crumble. The world was harsh. There was so much love, but also criticism and ugliness. We weren’t prepared to be disliked or misunderstood. It hurt. We were distorted mirrors of each other. I missed the stage and he had too much of it. We fell apart.”

Aja then added, “Our oldest daughter was suffering. Her foundation fell away and all that she knew was destroyed. We hated ourselves. The night was long. 7 months long. Then one evening he came to my door. I looked at him timidly because of all that I had gone through. Endless days of hiding in my closet crying beneath my clothes. Deep soul searching accompanied by the darkest thoughts that would eventually turn to light. He stood there on my porch and all I could see was my most favorite person staring back at me. I understood it all. We didn’t need the words. We were both forgiven..but… I wouldn’t put my ring back on.”

About the reproposal, Aja added, Even when we decided to stay together. I just couldn’t go back to what we were. I told him that we would have to start again. He agreed. Tonight we put our kids to bed and began to clean up the mess of the day. I could see that he was nervous but I didn’t know why. He got on one knee and before he could open his mouth I began to cry. Loaded tears that held nearly 10 years of growth. The answer has always been yes. Even before we knew what that meant.”

In April of 2018, the couple announced their separation. In January of 2019, they announced they were back together.
