Get Carotid U/S: At 62 you are at an age when carotids get narrowed. Are you on a statin drug? Statins are thought to delay carotid disease. If your carotid is 100% blocked little can be done, but if it is less than 90% blocked, Surgery is relatively low risk with experienced surgeons, and clot can be removed. Recommend a Carotid Duplex at the hospital or a good Radiological practice.
