Trust instinct: It is unlikely that the thoracic xray would provide additional information. The key is a good physical exam by qualified neurologist, pain specialist or physical medicine/rehab specialist. If treatment for an entrapment syndrome targeting tight muscles is successful, then they are right. Be vigilant, you are in charge!
