    So I am looking for relief for what I believe to be a pinched nerve, when I try to look over my shoulder I get a sensation in my lower trap/upper back on the same side

    When I stretch out with legs apart in sitting position and lean to the opposite side head to knee then tilt my head towards armpit I get the most intense stretch/sensation

    If I jerk my head in this position and then look back over the shoulder the pain goes away for a few seconds

    Also in this position when I move my arm it becomes somewhat numb

    Talk to your GP. No one on here is qualified or knows you well enough to help.
