Hi thanks for your question
Your right the tinitis (ringing in ear) could be due to anaemia .
The loss of hearing following slap could be due to rupture of the ear drum
It will be better for you to consult an ENT specialist.
Ruptured drum can heal of itself ,if some precautions are taken;
Keeping the ear dry.
Avoiding the common cold and its complication like sore throat and blocked nose.
Addationally you may need multivitamins.
Hope this answers your question
