Some of that behavior reminds me of hormones, nesting behavior. You say she usually doesn't flap her wings when you bend over (with her on your shoulder)? I thought she might do it to keep her balance. But if that's new and she prefers to lie down rather than sit upright, perhaps she does have a vestibular problem (maybe caused by bumping into something, mites in her ears, etc.) These are just guesses on my part. If she's not getting better, fluffs or isn't eating as much, do take her in to be checked. They can do a quick fecal to check for internal parasites, do a visual check of the skin, feathers and eyes. She's a little bird and can't fight illness too long.
