    "Do you feel" or "Do you feeling"? What are the rules about this kind of questions?

    Re: Need help with grammar please

    Welcome to the forum? When you say "this kind of question", do you mean questions that start with "Do you/Does he" etc? If so, then the rule I think you are looking for is that "Do you" etc is followed by the bare infinitive.

    If the question starts "Are you", it is followed by verb+ing.

    Do you feel ill?
    Are you feeling ill?

    Do you walk to work? (Habitual action)
    Are you walking to work today? (Specific event)
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
