In brief: Location

First that depends on what nerve in "pinched" and what are your true symptoms.
Are you having just pain or are you have problems with muscle control as well. The pinched nerve of your arm is often caused by a problem at the level of your neck and your symptoms just show up in your arm. I recommend you see an orthopedic surgeon for evaluation.

In brief: Many options

It certainly depends on the exact diagnosis and the nerve involved.

In brief: May not be nerve

Pain in shoulder/arm may not necessarily from pinched nerve---frozen shoulder, bursitis, arthritis, tendinitis all can cause significant pain.
