I will type it out here:
Right internal jugular vein is collapsed in erect position and no normal venous expansion noted in the supine position. There is venous expansion noted in the left IJV in the erect position. There is marked reduction in flow velocity and volume noted in both internal jugular veins in the supine position. On the right there is a significant mid stenotic lesion measuring 1.7mm diameter and on the left also a mid stenotic lesion measuring 3.0mm.
Evidence of bilateral valve abnormailties noted. No significant relfux.
Normal vertebral flow noted in both sides. No evidence of reflux.
I think I got confused over the 'vertebral flow' as I didn't realise this is an artery and not a vein.
Given that my valves and veins seem pretty rubbish, does this mean I am having trouble 'draining' the blood from the brain? This would make a whole heap of sense to me for my symptoms but I want to be sure.
Thank you for reading this far if anyone has yet!
