Why dosent my phone notify me when I get a text unless I'm in the app.

I have an lg g stylo that is running android 6.0. I am having a problem where I cant see that I have a text message unless I open up the messaging app. I have my settings set that it should show notifications. I have this set in both general settings and in the app settings. I am using the default messaging app. I tried using the google messenger app but I had the same problem with that. I disabled hangouts because someone said it would help. I also set the notifications to priority but its not working. Please help. Also this is my first post so if I didnt give enough information I'm sorry.
