In brief: Sure it can

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.

In brief: Nerve compression &

Yes, nerve compression & many other things.
Carpal tunnel is common but dont assume its that just because its is frequent..See a hand surgeon.
