POTD Day 26 Fun Stuff

In May the year before we returned to our home, I went to a city festival with my sis and her husband. It is a week long event that includes a parade. We decided to hit the fair during the week to beat the crowds.

We bought tickets and went on a few rides. This is the ferris wheel type ride they had that we all three went on. We each hit a few different rides, my sis and I went on the Scrambler together which always makes me laugh uncontrollably. My sis and her husband went on a the Graviton (which I can't do because of the spinning) and another one I think was called the Tornado.

My BIL and I went on a ride called the Kamikaze was an upside down ride but you were completely caged in so it wasn't that scary. My issue was with the gap between the shoulder harness and my shoulders. I should have pulled the harness down tighter before we started because as soon as we started to go upside down (and the hanging upside down part), I started to bang up against the harness. The next day, I had blood blister marks on my shoulders and upper arms. My feet hurt from wedging them under the footrest to keep myself from lifting up more than I was already.

The weird part was that the next morning, I woke up with this weird cold sensation all over my skin where ever it was exposed to the air. My legs in shorts would feel like I was wading through a creek if the wind were blowing. This continued for about a week before I finally went to the doctor. I just assumed the jarring of the ride had caused me to pinch a nerve or something. The exam was inconclusive and I was referred to a specialist.

Right about that time was when we moved back to our hometown and then a week or so later, I realized that I wasn't noticing it I never went to the specialist. I haven't had it return since then but then I haven't jarred myself since then either...
