Shaking head - Also has lymphoma

My cat has lymphoma with about a month left. She's been eating and drinking normally and doesn't seem in pain yet and the vet agreed.

Her head started shaking/twitching side to side tonight, lasting a couple of seconds. Then it would start again a bit later. I think its stopped now though.

Could this be due to the lymphoma, or could it just be ear mites...there are a couple of little black dots in her ears which apparently are a sign of ear mites but I'm unsure...

Could shaking/twitching her head mean she's in pain or be related to the lymphoma?

Thanks, please help

Re: Shaking head - Also has lymphoma

I'm sorry to hear about your kitty. What type of medication is she on? I had a cat with IBD that I believe eventually became lymphoma. She was taking Flagyl (metronidazole), which can have some neurological side effects when taken long term. You may be seeing sometime along those lines.

In any case, I would call the vet and see what they recommend.
