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.

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

I can hear this pulse/whooshing sound in my left ear mostly at night. Sometimes happens through the day. Should I be worried? What can I do to stop it?

It means blood is: Circulating into your head (brains). You want to hear it as long as you're alive! You need to not tunE into it as much, just like hearing your heart beat! If you didn't hear it, then you should really be worried! Don't get anxious over it. When it's quiet at night, it's more audible. It's a good thing! Use white noise of waves or nature sounds to distract you if irritates or worried by it. ...Read more

I'm hearing a slight deep "whooshing" sound in my right ear, almost like fluid (my ear is dry), and it coincides with movement- especially when I jump?

I'm hearing a slight deep "whooshing" sound in my right ear, almost like fluid (my ear is dry), and it coincides with movement- especially when I jump?

Still may be fluid: If you swam or showered, a thin layer of liquid can adhere to the tympanic membrane or ear drum and cause this sensation. Or some fluid can ooze out of tissue and be behind (inside) the eardrum. The outside the ear drum liquid should go away on it's own. And often the inner liquid will also resolve. If pain occurs or the whoosh doesn't clear after a week, have a doctor examine your ear. ...Read more

Ears were exposed to very loud sound by my strong headphones and I had pain and reduction of hearing but I feel better now, do I still need to go Dr?

Avoid loud noises: After one episode of exposure to very loud noise, if you feel like your hearing is normal, you probably don't need to see an audiologist. But, the well-known cause of premature reduced hearing is repeated exposure to loud noises, such as loud music, factory work, working around loud engines. Turn down the volume on the headphones and if you get pain, take them off. Give your ears a break to heal. ...Read more
