Sound in my ear that keeps me up at night

Patient

Q: Hi, for the past 3 days I have had trouble sleeping due to a noise that I keep hearing in my left ear. there is no pain and I have no other symptoms there is just a persistent shushing sound, like fabric rubbing together. It seems to only happen when I lay down and my position doesn't affect it. out side noise seems to drown it out but when my room is quiet the noise is there and I can't sleep.
Please help
