I awoke with numbness in my left cheek had a slight twitch in my chin for a few days. Can a pinched nerve in neck and between shoulder blades cause it?

Cheek numbness: Its is possible but since we have no information about you, not even your age let alone any medical history, no relevant response can be offered. If symptom persists, please see your doctor.
