Pretty sure I have pinched nerve on my left shoulder blade. What's the treatment/healin time? No pain, but numbness can I still lift weight?

See a neurologist: Given the numbness, see a neurologist for a full evaluation.

I pinched my vagus nerve in my right shoulder and now my arm hurts a lot and my heart rate is irregular. What kind of treatment can I do at home for this?

Go : Go to the er...Go directly to the er! do not eat a sandwich, nor anything else for that matter! the vagus nerve is not associated with sensory signals from the upper extremities. It starts in the brainstem and wanders throughout the neck, chest, and abdomen to control a variety of organ functions. The symptoms you are describing are more typical of a heart attack. Any abnormal heart rhythm should be evaluated immediately in an emergency room. Even something like atrial fibrillation can cause blood clots to the brain (a stroke). ...Read more
