Ringing in ears/hands falling asleep

My 4 (almost 5) year old dd has complained for a little over a month now about her ears "making noise". By questioning her I think she's describing a ringing in her ears. It started out only in her right ear but now she says they both do it. She says they do it all the time. She has also recently started occasionally telling me that her hands or feet are asleep. This happens at random times that I don't think are totally normal. For example, if she had been sitting on her feet or sitting still a long period of time I would consider this more normal. She does have a doctors appointment coming up where I will ask her doctor about these concerns, but just wondering if anyone here has experienced these things in their child or has ideas as to what would cause this. Thanks!

She tells me hers feels funny and then wants me to touch it so I can feel it too. Growing pains hasn't occurred to me. Could explain the hands/feet falling asleep. The ringing of her ears still concerns me some since she's complained of it so long.

Good luck.  I hope nothing serious.  It could be growing pains for the numbness tingling in hands/feet but worth it to get checked out.

Growing pains are associated with vit d deficiency so 20 minutes a day, no sunscreen should help. If she is severely deficient, she may need prescription strength supplements.
My first thought was atypical presentation of a food allergy, most likely to gluten/wheat, soy, or dairy.

Is she on antibiotics or do you give her Aspirin for anything?

She goes outside with no sunscreen almost daily at preschool but I'm not sure how much time they spend out. She also takes a multi vitamin but I'm not sure how much d is in it. It's interesting you mention food allergies because we recently (10 days ago) cut out wheat because I feel after research it is not healthy for us. We are and have been dairy limited for a little over a year now. We drink almond milk and and eat small amounts of cheese and yogurt. Is it possible an allergy could present itself so suddenly like that? Or maybe this was just one if many symptoms but they've been subtle so I missed them? I have noticed a behavior change for the better and an increase in appetite since eliminating wheat.
