I was just wondering, if you have c-spine lesions, is it alright to ride amusement park rides that put a g-force on you? I know lesions have to do with your blood/brain barrier. I was wanting to take my daughter to the fair and wasn't sure about riding the rides. Sorry if this is a bizzare question, just thought I would get some input:) Thanks

I certainly have not read ALL the literature regarding MS...

but I've not yet seen anything that suggests that amusement park rides would be forbidden for people with MS.

I do know this, though:  I have serious issues with loss of balance and loss of sense of where my left side is, due to lesions in my brain and/or spinal cord.  This means in the "real world" that things like amusement park rides are impossible for me to enjoy anymore -- I get sea sick even thinking about riding on one of them!  So you might find yourself uncomfortable after going on them, but they in themselves shouldn't affect your lesions, wherever they're located...


...I am not a doctor, nor health professional, and don't pretend to be one, here.....

Thanks so much uppity...I'm still very unknowledgable and don't know the do's and dont's or maybes. Just trying not to make things worse. Thank you for your response:)

I used to LOVE rollar coaster and amuzement park rides...I just get too dizzy anymore,and havent even attempted to get on one in probaly two years..geesh,maybe closer to 3 years. I did go to six flags(awhile back) with My Husband for a company picnic,thinking I could handle the rides and NOPE..I was on and had to keep my eyes shut the entire time because it really bothered me.
