Physical therapy.: Don't know if you tried physical therapy. The nerve may be pinched in the shoulder region, or in the neck. You may benefit from cervical traction, and manual therapy.

See an osteopathic physician (D.O.), who can do a complete musculoskeletal examination, and treatment to relieve the pinched nerve and realign your neck, spine, shoulder complex, and even lower back, that can contribute all the way into the base of the neck area. This is an easy maneuver to do, and you will get quick relief.
