Brief Answer:
Take a vitamin B 12 supplement

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to ask a doctor service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Numbness could be related to nerve compression, perhaps due to your underlying neck issues. I suggest you to take an oral vitamin B 12 supplement e.g 750 -1500mcg per day for a few weeks.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you need any more assistance
