Which, I have a pinched nerve in my shoulder, very painful. My dr wants to give me neurontin. I read the insert and it doesn’t seem like neurontin is for pinched nerves. Also it doesn’t have any effect on the pain. Why should I take this medicine?

1st off hello and thank you. Female,18, 5 5,145 lbs. I havent been hospitalized for any reason.For years I have experienced a sharp pain under my breasts at random or come on slowly. Several times I have had the feeling I just got stabbed in the lung and sometimes it will be an all day thing with breathing in. Along with this is a nomb /pinched nerve feeling that goes from my shoulder,elbow, to thumb. It happens more often with the pain at my rib and lung. I know you cant rightfully say whats wrong but give me an idea. I have told my doctors several times for several yrs. Thank you. Could it be involved with anxiety? I ve been diagnosed with that.

I have pain shooting down my left arm from a muscle in shoulder area. The pain permeates up to my neck and into my ear if I turn a certain way. I have limited mobility when I turn my head right or left. Slept funny two nights ago, but why does it feel like a nerve pain shooting down my left arm? What can I do to stretch the muscle or relieve the pinched nerve?
