Is it safe to ride on roller coaster after having a concussion treatment?

I m going to an amusement park tomorrow and I ve been wondering if I am able to ride roller coasters after I just suffered from a concussion almost 3 weeks ago. I was cleared by my doctor and I was able to resume sports and just played 5 soccer games as a goalkeeper the past two days. And I ve only been dizzy, but it went away with drinking water and eating, so I passed it off as dehydration .

Thank you for posting your query.

If you have completely recovered from the symptoms of concussion, it is alright for you to go on a roller coaster ride, six weeks after concussion.

However, if dizziness is persisting or coming intermittently, then it may get flared up after the ride. So, in case your symptoms are there, then, please do not go for the ride.

Best wishes,
