Hello, I am a C6-7 quad. For the first time

Hello, I am a C6-7 quad. For the first time in 23 year, I have experienced autonomic hyperreflexia manly associated with my bowel regimen. I have been to the ER twice in the past three days with no answers other than migraines. I've had migraines before and there is no comparison. I live in Monroe, Louisiana. I'm seeing my primary health (gp) care dr tomorrow. Anything I can do to help him w/o a ton of test?

Can Cervical DDD of C6-7 cause breathing issues? After a sinus infection in Feb and again in May, had difficulty breathing. Both times dr thought pneumonia, but xrays were clear. The first time, I was off work two weeks and eventually the shortness of breath went away. This time, it persists. I have psoriatic arthritis boarding on lupus so Doc though might be related to that and scheduled apt with pulmonary medicine, but they can t get me in till July 21st. Ended up in er yesterday, thought was having heart attack, as heart was beating hard, couldn t breathe, tingling down the arms, but heart is fine. Today I had CTScan of lungs to check for possible PE, but can was good. My o2 sats have remained good throughout at 98-99. I get the numbness down the arms, pain in shoulders (right is worse and got shot in it), can t lay on by back cause arms go numb, sometimes feel like fire ants are biting me. Oh, and I sound like I have laryngitis...have since this started. Based on an xray back in Oct 2013, I have DDD with narrowing of C6-C7. It s my understanding that the nerves from that area go to the lung area and throat. Since pulmonary keeps coming up negative, is it possible it s actually related to the spine instead, and I should have that checked out further?
