Thank you for posting your query.

The pinched nerve is not connected to the compression fractures of thoracic spine.

On the other hand, you could be having another problem of disc prolapse in the neck or lower back region, resulting in pinched nerve and giving rise to pain in the neck, arm, lower back and legs.

MRI spine focussed at cervical and lumbar region would help in the diagnosis.

Wishing you good health,
