Painless: First, you're too young (25) to have carotid disease. Second, carotid disease doesn't cause pain, it causes strokes and they're painless. Third, duplex can visualize as high in the neck as a surgeon is able to reach - beyond that, it's not approachable anyway. Disease, when present, tends to occur at the bifurcation which is low in the neck.
