In brief: It depends on area

It depends on the the location of the pinched nerve.
If it's in the neck you will have pain traveling down your arm. It may also be accompanied by numbness and/or weakness in the arm as well. If it is in the middle back these symptoms may wrap around your ribcage and if in the lower back they may radiate down your leg.
