Ashton recently revealed he nearly died from a rare disorder known as vasculitis, an autoimmune disorder that causes inflammation and narrows blood vessels. 

The No Strings Attached star said the disease ‘knocked out my vision, it knocked out my hearing, it knocked out like all my equilibrium.’ 

‘It took me like a year to build it all back up,’ he said in an upcoming episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls: The Challenge. 

According to Kutcher, his harrowing experience with vasculitis, though scary, gave him a new-found appreciation for his health and his senses, explaining that he hadn’t ever truly realized how essential they were, until he lost them.

‘You don’t really appreciate it, until it’s gone,’ admitted the human rights activist. 

‘Until you go, “I don’t know if I’m ever going to be able to see again, I don’t know if I’m ever going to be able to hear again, I don’t know if I’m ever going to be able to walk again.”‘ 

He added that he is ‘lucky to be alive.’ 

The actor revealed that it took him a year to build up his strength, prompting Grylls to praise his ‘strength through adversity’. 

The father of two said he considers challenges an opportunity for growth. 

‘The minute you start seeing your obstacles as things that are made for you, to give you what you need, then life starts to get fun, right? You start surfing on top of your problems instead of living underneath them,’ he said. 

On Monday night, he took to Twitter to share his current condition, before noting he’ll be running the 2022 New York City Marathon in November.

‘Before there are a bunch of rumors/ chatter/ whatever out there. Yes, I had a rare vasculitis episode 3yrs ago. (Autoimmune flair up) I had some impairments hear, vision, balance issues right after. I fully recovered. All good. Moving on,’ he wrote. 

The episode featuring Ashton will be released Monday night on National Geographic. 

What is medium vessel vasculitis?

Vasculitis is the name given to a group of conditions in which blood vessels such as arteries and veins become inflamed, or swollen.

Inflammation is the body’s natural immune response and helps the body fight off infection.

However, in patients with vasculitis healthy blood vessels become swollen, which narrows them and can increase blood pressure or reduce the amount of blood which can be pumped through the vessel.     

Medium vessel vasculitis is that which specifically affects medium-sized blood vessels such as arteries and veins which supply the muscles with blood. 

Vasculitis can range from a minor problem that just affects small blood vessels in the skin, to a more serious illness that causes problems with organs such as the heart or kidneys.

The cause is often unclear, but may be due to infection or medication.

Symptoms can include skin rashes, tiredness, weakness, fever, abdominal pain, and kidney or nerve problems.

Vasculitis is rare: about 14,000 new cases are diagnosed in the UK each year, and it affects around 97,000 Americans.
