Can someone get a brain aneurysm or die from rocking back and forth regularly?

Since I have been young I can remember rocking back and forth. I would either do it while sitting on my couch or lying in my bed by bashing my head in my pillow. The weird thing was that I only enjoyed doing it while watching TV or listening to music. I especially find it hard to be able to listen to music even when I am in a car without rocking back and forth. My main concern has always been if doing this regularly causes people to have any brain problems that can lead to serious problems or even death. I always hear of cases where a single blow to the head can cause a brain aneurysm that leads to death or cases where people live with a brain aneurysm and do not even realize it. I have been doing this for 19 years now and because I do not know how to stop myself from rocking/ what can happen to you/ what it is called I am more worried.
