Some of the common symptoms of irritation or pinched nerves in the neck are headache, sinusitis, dizziness, painful ear and face, shoulder and arm pain and/or tingling, hand and finger numbness and tingling
, difficult breathing and chest pain
, throat discomfort.
In fact, tension headaches most commonly occur when tightening muscles further restrict and irritate nerves that go to the head or control blood vessels that supply the head.
I hope this helps some.
