I think the tinnitus could be caused by low iron. I definitely have problems sleeping as well as anxiety when my iron is low. It also makes sense that symptoms are getting worse after your period. I find that I get weaker and have more symptoms the week before my period.

So take your iron! You won't overdose on 110 mg with a ferritin of 8. My doctor had me on 300 mg of elemental iron at one point and I didn't overdose. You don't absorb all of the iron you take. I know that my doctor considers a ferritin of 8 to be borderline anemic, even with normal hemoglobin. So get those numbers up!

If you are worried about side effects with your iron pill try a different type. There are many types available and everyone reacts differently. I couldn't take ferrous gluconate, or polysaccharide iron, so now I'm taking proferrin, a heme iron source. I am only taking 33 mg per day and I'm doing way better than I was on the 300 mg dose.
