Can pinched nerve cause sore and tightness in chest and shoulder?

My neck, chest, across my shoulders and between my shoulder blades are really tight and sore. I have limited motion when I turn my head side to side. And if I move a certain way I have moments of shortness of breath. Is it possible I have a pinched nerve?

Hello dear,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
cervical myeloradiculopathy may cause neck stiffness, decreased mobility.
other causes of stiffness and less mobility may be joint diseases like rheumatoid or ankylosing spondylitis.
some diseases are age related.
you should consult a neurologist for proper examination and evaluation.
Hope you recover early.
