Visit a Chiropractor. A pinched nerve is the result of a spine subluxation, correctible by manipulation of the spine. Both Chiropractors and Osteopaths can help a pinched nerve.

I got a pinched nerve in the neck from stretching the neck. I would say no but I'm not a doctor

No, pinched nerve in the neck can not kill you.

There are various ways to treat a pinched nerve in one's neck. A temporary repreive would be to massage the area which should reduce the pain for a time. The best action would be to visit the doctor who may recommend a nerve block. This would reduce the pain by injecting the nerve area to reduce the spasms which cause the pain.

Pinched nerves can be treated several ways; the most common treatment is a chiropractic adjustment. Muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatory medications can be prescribed for the pain and discomfort of a pinched nerve.

You could have a lot of stress, or perhaps a pinched nerve in your neck.

If you have a pinched nerve in the neck, you should visit a chiropractor. I had a pinched nerve and I didn't see a chiropractor, but it went away. If you can't afford a visit or don't want to go, just do what I did and lay in bed all day and not move your neck. I will feel like intense pain and may be sore the next couple of days but I would rather do that then pay the ridiculous prices of 1 chiropractor visit. You probably got the pinched nerve because you slept on it differently, or did something out of the ordinary lately. Hope this helps!!

Pinched nerves usually cause symptoms either in their immediate vicinity or downstream (in an arm due to a pinched nerve in the neck area). It is highly unlikely that "weird sensations in the brain" would result from a pinched nerve. However, pain and anxiety associated with a pinched nerve could make a person feel uncomfortable and unlike his or her usual self.

You could potentially see either one, but a neurologist might be a better way to go to start with unless the pinched nerve in the neck is giving you problems with your muscles such as muscle weakness.

The most common cause of ear and neck numbness is a pinched nerve in the neck or back. Injury can also cause numbness in these areas.

Could be a pinched nerve. Relax and have a neck rub.

You most likely have a pinched nerve in your neck or shoulder. It is recommended that you see a doctor or chiropractor to ensure it is nothing more than a pinched nerve that needs manipulated.

I have played two rounds with a pinched nerve. I cannot hit the ball as far and my putting is not as good. Other than that it was good to be out there. Don't overdo it. Rest is important.

Migraines are a genetic neurologic disease - the cause is in your genes. However, a pinched nerve in the cervical spine area (neck) can trigger Migraine attacks in people with the genetic capacity for them. Usually the best way to begin to manage Migraines is to find and eliminate triggers. In this case, that would include the pinched nerve. Depending upon the nature of the pinched nerve, it may be possible for a pain management specialist to do a nerve block procedure that might be helpful in at least temporarily eliminating or improving this trigger. This nerve block injection will contain a numbing agent and usually a corticosteroid.

Pinched nerves can hurt. The best way to ease this pain is to use a warm cloth and massage the area that is hurting.

it could be a pinched nerve in your cervical spine(neck}. Due to a bulging or herniated disc.

There is a number of possible reasons for this. A pinched nerve in the neck, a pinched nerve or blood vessel in the brachial plexus, located from the side of the neck through the arm pit. The only way to find out for sure is to see your doctor.

If there was no previous injury to that thumb then you most likely have a pinched nerve in your back, shoulder, or neck. Having a pinched nerve can cause this symptom and you should seek medical attention.

When you have pinched nerve in your neck that time you have do smooth exercise. Also do the massage of neck. But you have to do this very carefully.You must be take a rest.Answer:Pinched nerves can have many causes. Many people try home exercises or cures and often the nerve pain disappears within days or weeks which it would have done anyway. However home remedies may provide the wrong effect and worsen the problem or mask an underlying medical condition. A medical doctor or physiotherapist should be consulted.

What could be causing neck pain on left side could be generally one of a couple things. One would be muscle spasms and the other could be nerve pain from tight muscles or a pinched nerve.
