What Happens If You Let A Pinched Nerve Go Untreated?
Pinched nerves, left untreated, start as pain, then some numbness and tingling as it gets worse, so as the numbness and tingling. You will likely begin to notice weakness along the distribution of that nerve as well. Once you get to where you have sensory and motor deficits, you’re losing sensation and strength; you’ve got good nerve compression at that point. It can develop over the years.
