Cats vomit. It s just a fact of life. The question is, is it for a benign reason like a hairball, or a more serious problem like liver disease? The answer is determined by observation and testing. Vomiting is often preceded by drooling, lip licking, excessive swallowing, or even yowling. The act of vomiting, meanwhile, is characterized by strong abdominal contractions and head-bobbing.

As a physician, I ve heard patients for 25 years tell me that their hands go numb when they sleep. Should this be something that worries you, or is it no big deal? After all, if you ask around, hands numb while sleeping isn t a super common complaint of healthy people. Here s why you should be concerned about this problem and what may be causing it. First, you need to realize that when any body part goes numb, it means that the nerve supply to that area has been cut off. So your hands going numb while you sleep means that some nerve that goes from your neck to the hand is being compressed.

Screen goes dark, not pitch black like it's all the way off, just dark with a backlight glow to it. Pressing keys will not bring it back, but whatever I was working on will be affected by keystrokes, so the computer still functions. The display simply does not show until I restart. (meaning, I can do things on the computer, but I can't see what's going on) My power and display settings are set to "never turn off" (yes, on everything) As an experiment, I set the computer and display to "sleep with I close the lid". The next time the display went dark, I closed the lid, then reopened. The screen was still dark, but pressing the spacebar DID recover the screen.
