Broken neck

I had broken my neck about two and a half months ago.
I have been making a great recovery until my last doctors apointment about two weeks ago when my doctor told me that it was time I start walking around without my neck brace on but still wear it when I’m in a vehicle.
The day after I woke up with extremely sore muscles in my neck(appearently from not using them for so long)and a tingly numbness in both hands and all my fingers, but mainly my pinkies.
I read in my medical record that I also had two hurniated discs from my accident along with the C4, 5, and 6 fractures. Could the numbness be from the aggitated muscles, discs or have I reinjured my neck? Any information would be greatly appreciated, I would hate to waste my doctors time by calling him.

    You doctor works for you, feel free to call him anytime. Don’t feel you’re wasting his time. You are in pain, having problems and need a doctor who will address it. The symptoms sound like nerve compression, either due to the discs or possibly inflammation secondary to the injury.
