Danny Bonaduce Opens Up About Mystery Illness: “I Couldn’t Walk, Couldn’t Keep My Balance”

Danny Bonaduce opened up about battling a mystery illness on On ABC News Monday (June 27th).

The former Patridge Family star shared the symptoms of his mystery illness and said he “was hoping for a diagnosis but did not get one.”

Detailing his experience, he said, “I couldn’t walk at all. I couldn’t balance, I couldn’t do anything like that. Bonaduce added that he was “afraid of everything, I was afraid of my stairs, for God’s sake.”

In April, the Breaking Bonaduce star announced that he was taking a “temporary medical leave” from his radio show, The Danny Bonaduce & Sarah Morning Show.

Though Bonaduce’s illness remains a mystery, doctors were able to rule out a stroke. “I just immediately said ‘stroke.’ I’d seen my dad had a stroke, it was the same thing. I couldn’t walk, I couldn’t keep my balance, I slurred really badly, I couldn’t remember anything. And this amazing miracle of medicine, they said, ‘You did not have a stroke,'” he said.
