    For the last two days I've noticed that when in an iMessage conversation, when a new message comes in, there is an alert buzz but it doesn't show up on the conversation screen. By going back to the main message screen, the new message shows up. It was definitely not working like this a week ago. Anybody else noticed this?

    Try a hard reset - this fixes a lot of weirdness, especially when something unusual shows up suddenly...

    press/hole power and home buttons at same time until white apple shows up (ignore everything else that may show up on the screen), let go.

    See if this helps. If not, be suspicious of your most recently added apps. Not all play nice with the iOS and/or other apps. Delete the most recently added apps one at a time and see if the problem goes away.
