Chest discomfort due to flu. Cause of sound?

I caught the flu yesterday and I m through the aching, fever , dizziness , chills part. Now it seems to be mainly in my chest . When dozing off throughout the day I would hear a marching band drum beating in my head. I d wake up to see what was making that sound and it would of course disappear. I ve never had this with the flu that I can remember. Do you know what this drum sound could be about? I m not too congested. I can still breathe in and out of my nose. Thanks for any input.
