I have a pinched nerve in the trapizoid area of my back which is caused by repetitive motion. My question is can there be irreversible effects if left untreated and could such a condition cause numbness/tingling/pain in the leg as well as the arm. Thanks for taking this question
Adhesions may form in the muscle tissue itself. Apart from that, I wouldn't say there are "irreversible" effects of an irritated trapezius muscle. If, however, your self diagnosis is incorrect, and it's not a pinched nerve but something else, like spinal misalignment or join degeneration, then effects could be irreversible if you wait too long to correct it.
Nerve irritation can cause numbness/tingling/pain in the arms and legs.
