I, too, believe I have a pinched nerve that is causing a pinching sensation down my left arm. I also have left side rib pain esp. when coughing or tur?

In brief: If you're asking...

...whether the two are related, it's not likely.
Also, a "pinched" nerve does not mean you will have "pinching" sensations in the affected limb. That's a misinterpretation of a colloquial term for a compression neuritis/neuropathy or radiculitis/radiculopathy.
