A pinched nerve can develop when nearby tissue puts excessive pressure on the nerve. This partially interrupts normal nerve signaling and triggers unpleasant symptoms like pain, a pins-and-needles feeling, weakness, or numbness.
You can have pinched nerves nearly anywhere, from your neck to your wrists to the lumbar (lower) spine. It's quite common to experience pinched nerve symptoms in more than just the place where the nerve is actually compressed.
