Pinched Nerve Symptoms
The most common symptom of pinched nerve is numbness or tingling in your arms, hands, legs, or feet. Most people report that it feels as though their limbs have fallen asleep, but they haven’t done anything to feel that kind of sensation.
You may experience “pins and needles” during a range of activities, including walking, cooking, lifting, or typing. In some cases, nerves that may be pinched cause sudden stabbing pains or shooting pains. These pains may radiate from your back or neck and into your limbs.
The effects of a pinched nerve are often felt in a different location than the nerve. For example, a pain specialist might recommend nerve treatment in your neck if you experience sharp shoulder pain or shoulder numbness when you tilt or rotate your neck. The affected nerve is most likely in your neck, even though you feel the symptoms in your shoulder area.
You can get relief from shooting pains or numbness with pinched nerve treatment. You’ll be able to get back to your everyday activities when you don’t have to worry about sudden discomfort or not being able to move your fingers, arms or legs.
