How are you? Are there other symptoms present? Patients where headaches develop for the first time in association with a ride on a roller coaster (or other events that cause violent movement of the head with no direct trauma to the skull) may indeed be attributed to a possible subdural hematoma. It is important that imaging studies like CT scan or MRI of the head should be done to rule this out. A roller coaster ride can induce marked rotatory and other positional changes of the brain and can cause tensile and shearing stresses; cortical veins may tear leading to the hematoma. Take care and do keep us posted.
Hi, when ever u have a HA after participating in an activity u should lean on the side of caution and seek a drs advice.
There r conditions that lie dormant and an activity like this, ot a fall or a MVA can awaken or trigger symptoms...they many times start with a HA.
Good luck and do post an update
I agree with allmymarbles, the same thing happened to me after riding coaster one time.
Perhaps from the snapping and irregular motion your brain was banging against your skull. I guess that might cause swelling. I would see a doctor about this.
