    Pulsatile tinnitus, is that usually connected with anemia? I hear a boom in my ears and I have a headache.

    I'd never heard of it being connected with anaemia but it could make sense I guess. If it's been going on for a while or is bothering you a lot, have you spoken to your GP about it? I get it a lot (and other tinnitus etc) but tbh have so much going on anyway I tend to just ignore it unless it's really bad. There might be something they can do though.

    Thanks for your reply. I looked it up and anaemia could be one of the underlying causes but isn't the most common. However judging by my lack of iron - it is plausible and makes sense. I might make an appointment at the GP's and see how it is treated/diagnosed from there. Now I know what it could be caused from, I'm not overly worried to honest.

    That's good then! It would still be worth seeing your GP though as ou say, if only to adjust whatever treatment you're already having for anaemia. If your iron levels are low enough to be causing other problems then it's worth looking into really. See what they say anyway

    That is true and finding out a cause could put me out my misery and make sure it isn't connected with something else that is much worse. Thank you.
