If only that simple: Can you imagine the business doctors could have in their offices if all we had to do was cause PINCHED NERVES so that people could lose weight? Oh yeah man...give me that little cervical or lumbar radiculopathy for those flabby 15 lbs. Sorry though...not that simple...pinched nerves can HURT and be painful but they don't trigger or aid in losing weight.
