      Tinnitus Since:
      April 2021
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Pfizer vaccine
      I just went to see an ENT consultant who basically said go to the GP and get some antidepressants to deal with the distress your tinnitus is causing.

      A friend then asked me about anaemia being a cause. I was surprised to see it can be. There is some research about it and it’s a causative factor in a significant number of cases.

      Why the consultant did not check this out is beyond me. I shall have a blood test to investigate but surely consultants should look at hypothyroidism and anaemia before giving up?

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      I suffer from anemia from time to time and my whooshing pulsatile tinnitus is worsened during these times. However, I don't think anemia impacts non-pulsatile tinnitus as my non-pulsatile tinnitus stayed about the same before and after improvement of the anemia.
