Dr. Wang recalls the symptoms of a pinched nerve.
A pinched nerve can cause a lot of symptoms. It can cause pain. It can result in dysfunction of that nerve, so the nerve is not working appropriately, so you can get numbness, tingling, pain. The nerve goes to an area of your body, and that area can be affected. So that area may not be working correctly. It may not feel the same sensations.
