Hi Sue! On reviewing your concern it seems that it is prudent for you to visit your General practitioner, physician or Ear nose And Throat {ENT} specialist as soon as possible, as it is important that the flu symptoms be managed accordingly. The sound that you have described has a basis and seems to have been exacerbated by your current physical symptoms. Once the physical symptoms are treated, then the sound you have described can be appropriately evaluated and assessed by an ENT specialist and/or Audiologist. Temporarily, to assist with your concern, try reading a book or listening to the radio before going to bed; and try to avoid very quiet environments. A healthy lifestyle and appropriately managing stress {to mention a few} would assist in the management of your concern. Kind regards, Tasveer {Audiologist}
