Pinched nerve: Not a pinched nerve. The sensation of heat flowing through the left side of the body is not typical of a pinched nerve in the neck and certainly not a pinched nerve in the back. I would go see your medical doctor for an examination and further testing to determine the cause of the left sided flushing episodes.
