Brief Answer:
No.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your symptoms and would like to point out that a pinched nerve in the neck would not lead to symptoms on the face.

A pinched nerve in the neck can cause neck pain, pain in the arm, tingling or burning in arm, etc.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,

Dr Sudhir Kumar MD (Internal Medicine), DM (Neurology) XXXXXXX Consultant Neurologist
