Can nerves be damaged from squeezing?
My drunk cousin squeezed my biceps as hard as he could one time. I was much younger than him and the pain was excruciating. I kept telling him to stop but he didn’t. Did it for around 10-15 seconds before stopping. I didnt feel any after-pain and I think that might be because he compressed my nerves and turned them numb. Am I over-thinking this or is this likely what happened?

Its called neuropraxia but it takes more than a short squeeze to do much to compress them, and it returns even with significant compression. Long term bike riders get this in their hands and legs sometimes. It returns.

Only a doctor can tell you that, but nerves can be compressed and damaged.
