Could a pinched nerve in a neck cause numbness in the body and face?

Possible

Pinched_nerve
Forties male suspects neck nerve pinch as causal of "face and body" pain. If pain is localized to one shoulder and arm and same sided lateral cheek region this is a pattern sometimes associated with Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. A Neurologist is the best specialist to diagnose. The given description should be more precise as to body regions affected and pain characteristics.

Numbness in arm and leg on left side including face, pinched nerve?

Likely not

Open-uri20131028-11337-1ge7hpr
Numbness involving this much of your body can't be from a single "pinched" nerve. You should talk to your doctor about getting imaging of your brain to rule out things like a stroke, hemorrhage, or tumor.

Can a pinched nerve cause numbness in entire keft side?

Not usually

Nerve
Pinched nerves follow a specific pathway of pain in what is called a dermatome. These are isolated and well mapped in human anatomy. A pinched nerve usually affects one part of an arm or leg or specific part of the body, not an entire side of the body.

Dr. Bac X. Nguyen answered:

can a pinched nerve cause numbness in your hand and forearm?

Sure it can

Open-uri20120927-7502-8bfqqc
Depending on the location and severity of the impingement, a pinched nerve in your neck can certainly cause symptoms along its path--as seen example picture here. a pinched/trapped nerve at the elbow behind your funny bone can do so as well, so is carpal tunnel syndrome. If symptoms bothersome, consult doc for evaluation/treatment. Good luck

Dr. Atif Haque answered:

Can a pinched nerve cause tongue and facial numbness?

No

Numbness_
By "pinched nerve," I am assuming you mean in the spine. The nerve providing sensation to the face and the multiple nerves that contribute to the tongue come from the skull base, not the spine.

Can a pinched nerve cause burning and numbness in feet?

Pinches nerve

Pinched_nerve
Pinched back (lumbosacral) nerve roots can cause tingling in sole of foot if around S1 or back of foot if L5... But if both sides, symmetric, more likely a sensory neuropathy.

Can a pinched nerve cause pain, numbness and tingling in both hands and tingling in both lower legs? I had a broken vertebrae a few years ago ?

Spinal irritation

Open-uri20131006-32206-rtxyoy
Your problems can not be answered by one "pinched" nerve alone. You have bilateral symptoms, as well as lower extremity symptoms. You could possibly have spinal cord irritation (myelopathy) along with nerve issues. I would check an mri.

Dr. Jimmy D. Bowen answered:

Can a pinched nerve in the neck cause facil and scalp tingles and numbness to the touch as with the feet and legs ?will the EMG test figure this out?

Numbness

Head-scalp
An upper cervical nerve problem can cause posterior scalp numbness. Facial numbness is due to either a cranial nerve or brain. Tingling and numbness in face, scalp, and legs without arms involved is unusual but can be caused by what is call a peripheral neuropathy. An electrodiagnostic test involving nerve conduction and EMG may be quite helpful in determining what and how nerves are effected
