It took him about a year to build each of his senses back up, he explained.
The actor acknowledges feeling lucky to be alive, and despite the experience, Ashton doesn’t let that, or any of life’s challenges, bring him down. With a positive view of this, he sees them as opportunities for growth, he points out in the video of Access Hollywood.
what is vasculitis
Vasculitis is a rare autoimmune disorder with many variations that can lead to inflammation of the blood vesselswhich limits blood flow and causes damage to organs and some tissues.
This occurs when the body’s immune system attacks blood vessels by mistake. Vasculitis can occur from an infection, medicine, or from another disease. The cause is seldom identified.
There are many types of vasculitis and most are not common. Vasculitis can affect a single organ or several. The condition can be short-lived or long-term.
This disease can affect anyone, although some types of vasculitis are more common among certain age groups. Depending on the type you have, there are cases where you may get better without treatment. Most types require medication to control inflammation and prevent flare-ups.
