I know this is the most random question I could ask, but let me explain.
Before I started experiencing a wide array of health issues at the age of about 14, going to amusement parks and riding "thrill" rides like free-fall rides and roller coasters was one of my favorite things to do. My parents took us to a lot of amusement parks, so it was just something I grew up with I guess. Even after the health issues started, I continued to ride them for about 3 more years because my symptoms were things like difficulty pronouncing words and a loss of my sense of taste. I know now that those are issues that are likely to be neurological in origin, so I should have worried that there was something going on with my brain that would make hopping on a roller coaster dangerous, but I didn't know that at the time. I thought I had something like tongue cancer, lol, stupid I know, but I was barely a teenager.
Then when a whole bunch of other neurological issues started creeping up, I stopped doing pretty much everything I used to enjoy doing...not just going to amusement parks but a lot of the other activities I used to enjoy because my balance and cognitive issues made it really embarrassing to even be out in public.
I was having EXCRUCIATING localized headaches, a feeling as if there was liquid moving around in my brain, sensitivity to fluorescent and flashing lights, balance issues, numbness in random parts of my body that would come and go, frequent urination, issues with coordination, spelling phantom burning smells, dizzy spells, incessant ringing in my right ear, constant chest pain, issues with remembering words and being able to formulate sentences, and other some symptoms.
While researching my symptoms, I kept coming across information about things like cerebral aneurysms and brain tumors, so I was afraid to go on roller coasters or any other thrill rides because I was afraid I had an aneurysm that the force of the ride would cause to burst or something. I stopped going on other types of rides, too, because so many of them use strobe lighting effects, which make me feel sick, and I was also afraid that some of the symptoms were related to a seizure disorder and I would have a seizure on the ride or something. I remember one time, my family convinced me to get on a log flume ride, and I was fine until we got to the part where they had a strobe light, and then I threw up. They said it was just psychological...that I expected the ride to make me sick, so it did. Maybe they're right. I have no clue. I just want it all to stop.
I was stupid and didn't go to a doctor for about 7 years. I was completely convinced that the only logical explanation for all of this was that I had a brain tumor or aneurysm, and if I did, I didn't want to know. I don't know why other than that I didn't want to have brain surgery, and I also felt like, if I had something like that, it would be my fault somehow and my dad would blame me for adding more stress to his life like he did when my mom was sick.
So anyway, eventually about a year ago, I did go, and now I've been to a whole slew of doctors who keep telling me there's nothing wrong. My neurologist said there was a UBO (unidentified bright object) on my MRI, but it's really tiny, so he doesn't think it's significant. He's right. It *is* really tiny:
I've also been to a cardiologist to rule out heart complications. He did a stress test and echo and said they were both fine.
Since I've had the brain scan done, does this negate any and all possibility of something like a brain aneurysm that would make hopping on a roller coaster dangerous for me? The next time I go somewhere with my family, if I'm in the clear to do so, I would like to try going on all of those attractions that I used to love partaking in before all of this nonsense started instead of standing there waiting for my siblings to get off the rides.
I'm just looking for you all's input because I don't think I'd get much input from my doctors since not a single one of them even thinks I have health issues.
