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.
Not so much: The whooshing sound in your ears implies pressure in the ears, infection, hypertension, or a blood vessel that may be laying across your hearing mechanism. 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

Possibly: If the ear drum has ruptured from the ear infection - which is not uncommon.. Then yes you would see drainage from the ear.

Does sagittal craniosynostosis have to be treated? What would happen if a minor case isn't treated? Would a child's head grow mostly normally?
Abnormal head shape: Premature fusion of the sagittal suture would stop growth from that site. Since the growing brain would need more room, it would expand the skull in the direction open to growth.This produces an oblong skull with increased front to back dimension while the side to side remained narrow. True CS needs to be fixed surgically in infancy. ...Read more
