I don't have high blood pressure and got my MRI done if brain and it was normal
Can it be due to jugular vein or carotid artery kinking or getting compressed at a particular angle when bending ?
Secondly it is only in my right ear
Can MRI brain rule out problems I neck
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Can I get any ultrasound or test while bending to check the blood pressure on that position I.e bending ?
Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 7 months ago.
NoDisc problems and other problems in the neck need imaging of the neck.It would not be vein.If there is a blockage in your carotid, your doctor might hear a murmur.If not, an ultrasound of the carotids can rule this out.I suspect you are normal.

Ultrasound of carotid was also normal
I don't know if he checked my jugular vein of not ?
What imaging test should I do for neck
Also if I put pressure on right side of neck the sound disappears
Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 7 months ago.
Jugular vein would have nothing to do with it.MRI of the neck shows more.Please click a positive.Come back if needed.
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I be added my ultrasound of neck
So should I get MRI of my neck also ?
Brain MRI cannot rule out neck problems ?
What about neck ultrasound ?
One more thing sir
Is it due to more blood flow by bending or less blood flow ?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Hello sir
Pls reply
Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 7 months ago.
AS I said, I think you are normal.And this might even be anxiety.Many people can hear their pulse in a certain position;An MRI of the neck is preferred.Bending neither increases or decreases blood flow. please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent—that’s how we are paid, per rating].
