Dan Reynolds, lead singer of the multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning band, Imagine Dragons, has earned legions of fans worldwide with sold-out tours and chart-topping songs. Behind the scenes, Dan has been living with AS, an inflammatory arthritis of the spine, for more than a decade.

After suffering from unexplained back pain for many years Dan was diagnosed with AS—a painful disease that is part of the axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA) disease spectrum that most people probably aren’t familiar with.

The Monster Pain in the AS campaign helps educate people about unexplained back pain and axSpA. You can take a quiz and be connected to a rheumatologist who can help.
