There are symptoms of jugular blockages, such as blurry vision upon awakening that improves later in the day, puffy eyes, dizziness upon bending, and I'm sure there are others.
One could probably also google symptoms of a blocked azygos vein.
Present your symptoms only to your PCP, say you're worried you may have a vascular problem and would like to see a specialist (either an IR or a vascular doctor, such as Dr. Dake at Stanford for his excellence).
Worth a try.

I am a 29 year old male, white/hispanic who works full time. About two years ago I started getting peripheral neuropathies. After two years I am unable to tolerate exercise, have ballooned from 185 to 210lb, have daily scalp/forehead numbness, chronic fatigue, difficulty concentrating (started in 2004), muscle jerks, muscle twitches, and for the last 6 months have felt like I am walking on a boat due to dizziness.
I have just spoke to Dr. Dake's office and am planning on sending them all my records and taking a trip out there if they will see me. I do NOT have an MS diagnosis so I can undergo treatment if the test results indicate it.
