• Fast, shallow breathing in cat?

    About a month ago, my grandad’s cat was very ill and didn’t eat or drink for almost two weeks. The vets concluded it was constipation and gave him a course of medicine. He started to gain weight again and we thought everything was fine, until today when I noticed that he was breathing quite fast and shallowly. He doesn’t seem to be in pain or anything and purrs when I stroke him, and he still eats (though not as much as he used to)... I couldn’t say how long this has lasted, but I noticed that he had the same fast breathing in a video that was sent to me two weeks ago. Behaviour wise, he seems pretty much the same (with the exception of not eating as much). Is this something to be worried about if the vets examined him not that long ago? He is 7 years old. ☆ Sent from iOS Dr. Know! 1.1.03

  • Why do I have a ringing noise in my ear?

    I’ve had a flucturating ringing (it doesn’t sound like a constant ring) in one of my ears for a few months now, but I haven’t done anything about it because it’s quite quiet and I don’t notice it unless I think about it. I haven’t noticed any hearing loss or any other symptoms, just the ringing. Could an earwax build up or something cause this? I’m... show more

  • Why does my pinky finger go numb?

  • Can acne treatments make your skin worse?

    Yesterday I got prescribed with Zineryt, an antibiotic that you apply directly to the face. The doctor told me I won’t see results for a few weeks and this is fine, but I’ve had a few new spots since using it. Does acne medication make it worse before it gets better? Or does it just not work for me? ☆ Sent from iOS Dr. Know! 1.1.03

  • Flickering vision when I close my eyes?

    It’s kind of hard to describe, but for the past few weeks my vision has appeared to be flickering when I close my eyes. It only happens at night, not during the day or anything.

    My lower back (the area around the spine) hurts/aches if I stand for very long periods of time (I’m talking about hours) or if I’m sitting in an uncomfortable chair or position.

    I see moving/flickering dots in the dark and in dim light. Is this normal? I can also see them on smooth surfaces. These aren’t floaters, it’s like millions of buzzing dots in your vision, kind of like the ones seen at night. Does anyone else see this? ☆ Sent from iOS Dr. Know! 1.1.03

I feel like I’ve always been able to see some kind of static in the dark but now that I’m thinking about it a lot, ive started seeing it in the day too. My mum says she sees some static when she thinks about it, but it never bothered her because she didn’t think about it. Does everyone see like this? I literally cannot tell if what I’m seeing is real. I seem to be noticing it a bit when I don’t think about it, could this be because I’ve trained my brain to realise its there? ☆ Sent from iOS Dr. Know! 1.1.03
