A pinched nerve can occur at several places on the body. A pinched nerve in the wrist can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome, while a herniated disc in the lower spine can create a pinched nerve in the back. This can cause numbness, tingling, sharp or burning pain, muscle weakness and other symptoms.
If corrected quickly, a pinched nerve usually leaves no lasting damage. If not addressed, however, this pinched nerve can lead to chronic pain and permanent nerve damage.
