I have read that symptoms for Carotid Artery disease usually show up when it's too late. I am hypersensitive to my body though and wonder if some of my symptoms could be signs of CAD. I get strange spasms in my head in place that seem to be where the carotid (left) runs. I also get numb in my face and neck where my carotid is. I also hear my pulse in my left ear sometimes and sometimes after I burp, I hear pulsing noises in my left ear. Should I be concerned about CAD?
