Any relationship with pinched neck nerve and sudden buzzing/hissing ears

About 14 days ago I woke up with tight neck muscles and difficulty turning my head and also difficulty looking down, but the worrying part is I started having buzzing/hissing ears. Not really ringing, and also a weird sensation sort of behind the throat as if something was slightly vibrating. At times it was very intense.
I went to see an ENT and with his 5 minute visit he said it was tinnitus more than likely. My hearing tests were normal. I had no other symptom with my ears until that day. I'm 38 years old. I'm getting an ear and head MRI but don't think that is going to reveal anything as the sensation sometimes happens on only 1 ear or sometimes both. The Dr. also said I may be able to reverse it since it recently started with a 1 week course of Prednisone (steroids). I'm scared of taking the Prednisone.

I went to see a physical therapists and he said I had pulled a neck muscle badly and he also confirmed I had a pinched nerve in the neck. After 2 visits my neck is feeling better but the buzzing/hissing hasn't diminished much, but when its intense I get the sensation that something is vibrating behind my throat.

My question, is there a relationship with a Neck strain and buzzing/hissing sensation?

  • I have head neck and shoulder issues for a few years. Every time I would have a flare up I would have ringing in my ears. Even since my surgery although it has gotten somewhat worse. I don't think it has anything to do with my hearing, Some medications can make the ringing worse also from what I have been told. I sometimes get more of a buzzing like a seccaida(sp) like chirp. Super annoying.

  • I'm scheduled for neck surgery (c6 - c7) and since I injured my neck I have been getting a weird buzzing sound in my ear. It's hard to describe, it's short - a couple seconds long - and it sounds almost like an electrical buzz. It doesn't bother me as much as the chronic pain in my neck and right arm so I can live with it. I just hope this surgery helps with the pain. Thanks.
