Customer: Ringing in ears, tingling hands and feet, neck tension. Also, I just had full braces put on five months ago (top-porcelain, bottom-metal). Could this be related?

This is Dr. Davidfull braces can cause jaw and teeth pain and pain in ears.usually it doesn't cause ringing in ears and tingling in your hands and feet.you could have a slipped disk in your neck putting pressure on nerves in your neck or spinal stenosis which can cause neck pain and tingling in your hands and feet.you might need a neck spine MRI scan.do you have a doctor you can see who can order an MRI scan for you?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Ok, could it also be diabetes? or Menopause? Does the pressure/ringing fit those?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 8 months ago.
these are not typical symptoms of diabetes or menopausethe pressure and ringing sounds more likely to be from a pinched nerve in your neck or from tension in your neck or stress or anxiety.
