Thanks for posting your query.

The two problems that you are facing are:
1. Tingling of the arm: Tingling usually results from injury to the nerve, dietary deficiency of certain nutrients like vitamin B 12, etc
2. Ringing in the ear: Ringing in the ear occurs due to involvement of the inner ear by any disease process. The injury to right side of your head could have caused this tingling sensation.

You need to consult an ENT specialist for the tingling in the ear and an physician for tingling sensation in your arm.

If you have more queries, I will be glad to answer.

Hello and welcome again,

Since, the symptoms started after the accident there is possibility of nerve injury. If it is interfering with your daily life, you should visit your doctor for clinical examination and relevant investigations for appropriate management.

Thanks and take care.
