What is the treatment for tingling and numbness?

Background: I have a neck injury Fx C6 with ruptured disc between C7-T1, C6-C7, C4-C5 and bulging disc C5-C6. Today I was stretching my head/neck and now I have ringing/buzzing in my ears and my hearing is not so good. Is this a major concern?
All other symptoms remain unchanged. Same numbness, tingling and burning in the exact places it has been since the accident.

The ringing in the ears is called tinnitus. This can be due to:

√ You might have stained your neck while doing exercises.

√ Forward head posture√wearing collar for long time

Ear infection

Injury to C0-C1 joint. In either of these cases the problem is reversible The hearing problem is not permanent,it is due to interference of the ringing.

You need to visit an orthopedic or physiotherapists to find the exact cause. For the time being stop exercise, apply hot packs to relax muscles, prevent neck bending movements, and can do gentle chin tucks (standing position) provided it does not cause pain or worsening of symptoms.

Hope this helps you. Let me know if I can assist you further.
