Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Pinching feeling is due to the nerve irritation at the shoulder.

Arthritis or muscle pull can cause this commonly.

Not likely concerning.

Should improve by avoiding too much overarching activities, hydration.

Supplements like vitamin B12 and B6 daily also should help.

Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
