When you are upright, your jugulars are not as necessary. Still useable, but mostly collapsed, because gravity forces outflow blood to take another route.
If you have stenosis in your jugulars, it is this low-gravity drainage that will not work as well, or be missing. If you could sleep standing up, that would be a kind of answer. That is what one radiologist actually told a person to do.
If there were no circulation through your brain, you would not be alive. It is when flow is slow, and marginal, that we get this kind of creeping disorder that takes a long time to manifest, and then something seems suddenly broken. It was actually a long time coming.
