Can low iron and being slightly anemic cause "whooshing" sound in ears. If so, will it go away once my iron levels are back to normal.

Of course, there can be many other causes, but anemia or low iron would not be on my list of explanations for this type of symptom. If it has only been a short time, great. This could be viral. If it's been a long time, you may need a workup.. ...Read more
