The senses : Most of them time your doctor can diagnose a pinched nerve by letting you tell your story in your own words and by examining you. Depending on the type of pinched nerve you have, an imaging study, preferably mri, and possibly nerve studies may be needed to confirm the diagnosis and to help tailor the most effective treatment plan for you.
