pain in sternum referring to hand

Hi,
A friend of mine tonight asked about pain he's been getting in his sternum, around his sternoclavicular joint. Gets it mostly when laying down, especially on his side. When he presses on the pain, he feels pain in his hand. How does this happen? Is is Cervical Spine related?
