Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

That means there is no blockage to the carotid blood vessels.

Twisted vessels can be normal for some individuals.

At least your brain is getting normal blood flow.

Low BP and fainting can be due to the adrenal gland insufficiency.

Lack of cortisol can cause drop in BP.

Serum cortisol level at 8 AM in the morning fasting should be checked.
Best wishes,

thank you. ill mention that to my dr. I have a pineal gland cyst. it grew years ago to .5 and seziures increased but I only watch brain ever three years via mri and drs don't think that is the source.
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 1 year ago.

Ok --that seems very unlikely.

Best wishes

the doctors have ruled out the pineal gland cyst long ago, just though I double check with this service for some continuity of care. the Indian hospital I go to sent me to ou medical to rule out addisons and only the primary conducted testing and he said no addisons and no reason to send to specialist. that was that. is there a need to redo cortisol test? maybe just annually?
