Crazy question about cervical nerve symptoms

Has anyone here experienced a chronic cough/runny nose? I have NO discs left from C3-C7. Just found this out because I was having weird pain and numbness in face, neck, shoulders, arms. The chronic nasal discharge, cough and hoarsness may just be unrelated but I wondered if anyone else has heard of these types of symptoms being related to cervical nerve damage?

    I don't think crazy question!
    I do not have the severity of yours......with no cervical discs c3-c7

    From my years ago MRI, I have......
    C5 -6 herniated discs, narrowing, degenerative changes C6-7 large bulging component Cervical arthritis

    Recently, I had an unanswered post, similar to yours, but my symptoms a little different.

    I was wondering if any cervical issues could be responsible for the weird feelings inside my mouth and changing voice.

    I have the numbness of my mouth, lips and of my tongue, esp the tip of my tongue and also numb like feeling roof of my mouth, forward toward the teeth.
    I have on and off sore throat and occassionaly feels like lump in my throat.
    Also, occasional hoarseness...sounds like laryngitis or like I sucked on helium and have squeaky voice. I'll be speaking normally and then voice squeaks for a while then back to its usual.

    I often times have nasal drainage and bit of a cough that accompanies my bad headaches .

    Mine going on couple ..few..months. I forgot to mention when I last saw PM doc..so had to wait a month. Now it's more constant. I won't forget this time.

    I'll be watching your post to see if anyone else can related.
