In brief: Evaluation

If otc nsaids (aleve, motrin), and tylenol (acetaminophen) are not helping and the radiating arm pain is progressing, then you need a medical evaluation with xrays and possibly MRI if the exam reveals an abnormality.

In brief: Jargon

Pinched nerve is jargon for many things.
It could be muscle spasm or actual impingement by surrounding tissue.
