Woman with muscle spasmSometimes, due to stress or caffeine, muscles will spasm on their own without any cause for concern.

In other cases, however, a pinched nerve may actually be behind your recurring muscle spasms.

Here’s how to tell and what to do about it.

5 Signs of a Pinched Nerve You May Not Know About

The musculoskeletal system and central nervous system work together very carefully to keep everything humming along smoothly. Years of poor posture, improper lifting techniques, prolonged sitting, and sudden injury can all throw off this delicate process.

Keep an eye out for these symptoms of a pinched nerve.

  1. Numbness in your hands, extremities, or anywhere impacted by the pinched nerve.

  2. A sharp, electrical, or burning pain that radiates from the pinched nerve outwards.

  3. The area in question or nearby extremity frequently “falls asleep” or feels like pins and needles.

  4. Muscle weakness in the affected area or associated extremity.

  5. Spasms in muscles surrounding the pinched nerve.
