In brief: Yes

Numbness and weakness in the right upper and lower extremities may indicate nerve compression at the level of the spine.
MRI and EMG could localize and prognosticate a compressive neuropathy and would give guidance to appropriate treatment options. Consult with a physical medicine and rehabilition specialist would be appropriate.

In brief: 2 nerves

one pinched nerve can't cause numbness in arm and leg.
So look for other causes, or multiple levels of disease
