comment How to get rid of nerve pinch in shoulder?
Good luck. If you study the shoulder before you see someone, you can ask better questions and get better information from them. Find a good pro - sadly all pros are not alike.

comment Chest pain while running over 160 bpm
Yes you should have it checked out by your doctor. Pain or pressure in the chest esp. during exercise may be a warning sign. Only your doctor can tell you if it is a health problem or not. The NIH describes chest pain or discomfort: "This involves uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness, or pain in the center or left side of the chest that can be mild or strong. This discomfort or pain often lasts more than a few minutes or goes away and comes back."

I agree with @Dave about the skin calipers. Also, what is your waist circumference measurement? These two measurements will tell you if you are on the right track.

comment Daily stretch routine to increase flexibilty and overall fitness?
@Bee, it is the static stretches before workouts that are said to be likely to contribute to injury, not dynamic stretches. Save your static stretches for after your workout when you are already warm. Dynamic stretches are recommended before workouts or as part of warm-up. Here is an article on both static and dynamic stretches related to swimming.

Has your doctor actually cleared you to return to sports?

comment How to get rid of nerve pinch in shoulder?
If the stretches don't clear the pain, it is still a good idea to have an orthopedic phyical therapist or manual therapist take a look at it and give you a specific program. It may need soft tissue work and even specific joint mobilizations. Everything has to work together just right otherwise the shoulder and the rotator cuff can get aggravated. Good luck.
