Could anyone let me know how the following examples differ in meaning?

  • Get on someone's nerves:
    If someone or something gets on your nerves, they annoy or irritate you.
  • Get to someone:
    to annoy or upset someone.

To me, they both convey a same concept.

    Yes, the same. And both somewhat informal. Probably choose between based on your intended audience.
