Your friends and family may just shrug off your complaints of pinched nerves as a minor issue, but let them know that it can actually be quite serious. The pain starts when tissue surrounding bone, muscle, tendons or cartilage is trapped or pushed up against a nerve. Herniated discs, arthritis and bone spurs are all possible causes. Pinched nerves can occur in your neck, back, elbows, wrists or other parts of your body, and pain can strike at any time, even while you’re sleeping.
