Customer Question

JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
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?
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Health Professionals generally expect a deposit of about $32 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied).

This is Dr. David

full 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 1 year ago.
Ok, could it also be diabetes? or Menopause? Does the pressure/ringing fit those?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

these are not typical symptoms of diabetes or menopause

the 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.

to see your doctor

see if an MRI scan of the neck or spine is needed.

see if you have excessive stress or anxiety causing neck tension.

see if relaxation techniques can help.

you can get blood test to check for diabetes as well so you don't have to worry about it.
