Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Pinched nerves in your neck can be from disc disease or vertebral body compression. You need to see your doctor for xrays and possibly an MRI. This can cause pain in you neck and down into your ribs and arms. This may be treatable by injections, but you need an accurate diagnosis to get the best treatment recommendations. See your doctor as soon as possible.
Regards,
Dr. Robinson
