TOO V CERVICAL DISC: SX are suggest cervical disc disease vs TOO (THORACIC OUTLET OBSTRUCTION)When you cough, sneeze or hiccup, you increase intrathoracic pressure and flare pain. Please see your doctor and get an MRI of the cervical spine and MRA of RUE to evaluate both conditions . The 2 can overlap and a NEURO CONSULT for EMG(ELECTROMYELOGRAM) may be needed. Also labs b12/folic acid/TFTS
