A 40-year-old member asked:

can a pinched nerve in your neck on the left side cause weakness in the left side of face leg and arms?

No: A pinched nerve in the neck would not cause leg symptoms. Spinal cord compression may.
Dr. TORY MCJUNKIN

Also have to consider stroke, neurological lesions (like MS), brain injury, and spinal cord injury.

Face weakness: Similarly, a "pinched nerve" in the neck would not be expected to cause facial weakness.
