I get ear ringing a few times a day which has gotten worse recently
Customer: replied 15 days ago.
The bottom of my neck at the back is a bit numb too
Expert:  Dr Geyik, MBBS replied 15 days ago.

The most common cause of neck pain is muscular pain. This is not dangerous but can be quite painful. You could try pain relief first to see if this helps. If not, you should see your doctor for assessment and possible X-ray. For pain relief you can try paracetamol OR co-codamol (codeine + paracetamol), and you can add ibuprofen to these, provided you are not allergic to these medications and you don't have asthma or stomach issues.

Okay thank you so much for your time
Expert:  Dr Geyik, MBBS replied 15 days ago.

You are welcome. Hope you feel better very soon.

Expert:  Dr Geyik, MBBS replied 15 days ago.

The ringing in your ears is likely due to muscle pain/spasm in your neck. If this persists, you can mention this to your doctor if and when you see them. If you develop pain, bleeding, discharge, hearing loss, you should see your doctor earlier.
