Hi,Thanks for providing more information.
As per your description,potential differential diagnosis may include Atherosclerosis of carotid artery,Nerve compression,Autonomic dysfunction,Vitamin B 12 deficiency.
So further investigations like
Carotid doppler study.

Thank you kindly! Is the ANSAR test typically ordered through a neurologist?
Thanks for the follow-up.
Well in my opinion,you need to be seen by a neurologist for further evaluation.
And ANSAR test can be advised by neurologist after undergoing a complete clinical examination.
