Burning Sensation on Scalp, Eyes and Ears

My dad is 64 Years old and he has cervical spondylosis (between C1 and C2 vertebrae) from past almost 25 years.
He has burning sensation on scalp and sometimes numbness. If he goes out in sun for 5 minutes also the burning sensation on scalp will be severe. He has burning sensation in eyes. He cannot bear the tube light or cannot watch televison due to bright light and also cannot read books for longer than 15min. He cannot bear loud noises and cannot talk on phone for longer time. These will cause nerves weakness.  He had hearing tests done and doctors could not able to diagnose it.  One doctor diagnosed as Depression symptoms and put him on medication but no improvement is seen. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Dear Sun99,
C1 and C2 disc compression is a risky thing as the nerves supply to the head,face and eyes also.It's due to this reason, that he might be facing these symptoms.Also the vertebral artery runs here.So chances of compression of the blood supply can also be a factor.
Here , in view of his age, i request you to consult a Spine specialist really soon.
Regards.
