I've been to amusement parks where they have disclaimer signs while you're waiting in line for the ride that say "not for people with" and they have a long list of disorders, one of which was intestinal disorders. Maybe it's just a liability thing *shrug*.
I searched healingwell and actually came up with an old post of mine from 2012 haha. I wasn't actually on pred at the time, but it wasn't a good time. Certainly I'd avoid any of those fast spin you around like a top rides, as those really got me.
Has uc, and the meds I'm on (ASA 5's), taken my rollercoasters away? I used to love amusement park rides, especially rollercoasters. For the first time since being diagnosed with uc, I went to an amusement park earlier this summer and I didn't have such a good time. I got off one ride and felt very dizzy, queasy, and generally weird-feeling long afterward. A minute after getting off the ride I had an urgent need to find a bathroom and poop, which I did. I'm guessing the dizziness is because of the meds. There was a sign on the ride saying not for people with intestinal disorders, along with a lot of other things... anyone still go on the good rides at amusement parks, or are all us ucer's just bench-riders while others go on the fun rides?
I've certainly gone on rides more sparingly and selectively since then...
