A pinched nerve can cause severe pain. Doctors often recommend resting the affected area as the best treatment for a pinched nerve. Pain medication can also be prescribed for relief of a pinched nerve. Doctors recommend over-the-counter analgesics (NSAIDs), like ibuprofen and naproxen, but if the pain is severe, a prescription-strength medication can be given. A corticosteroid injection can also help reduce the pain.
