Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

It is unlikely that pinched nerves in the cervical region and nerve damage would result in heart disease. A qualified doctor would not make such a comment, so, I feel there may be some mis-communication between both of you. So, your chest pain and ventricular premature complexes are not related to the pinched nerves.

If you can upload his prescription, I would be able to clarify the matter further.

I hope my reply has helped you.

I would be pleased to answer, if you have any follow up queries or if you require any further information.
     
Best wishes,
