No: A pinched nerve around the elbow will only cause problems from the elbow down to the fingers. However, the same symptoms often represent a pinched nerve in the neck, which can feel like a pinched nerve in the elbow. Many of these resolve on their own. If it persists, you can get it examined to get a clearer answer.

I've had mild to extreme shoulder blade/neck/shoulder pain for four years, pain increased with caffeine beverages, what could this be?

Possible Migraine: It's possible that this may be a migraine variant. It's possible to see pain in the neck and shoulder area with some folks.

If your symptoms persist or worsen (such as weakness), seek medical attention. Commonly (if this is what you do have.), a trial of physical therapy is very successful, but occasionally, surgery may be needed.
