Sounds like the shifter solenoid might be sticking (the "unintended
acceleration" fix.)  It may also be loose or bent just enough to impede
the levers travel.  Try tapping the brake quickly, (you should hear the
solenoid clicking,) while going back and forth with the shifter.   
Health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.
