I get that sometimes. Somethin to do with the way the ducts get blocked. I've had puss type stuff come out. It goes away.

Ready for ATOT attacks.

Good, that means your nasolacrimal ducts are not obstructed. You would be worse off if a little air did not blow out the inside corners of your eyes when you blew your nose while holding it.

why don't ppl just google or "ask" this crap?

You could probably include in the search the number of times that ppl fart when they blow their nose also.

Don't tell me you've never seen the people who can squirt milk from their eyes and blow smoke through them. Obviously, your sinuses and eyes are connected somehow.

I'm kind of used to it now, I do wonder if it makes people go when I eat with them.

Somehow?

It's a big connection, nothing confusing about it.

The tear duct (drawing a blank on the anatomical term) is connected to one of the sinuses closest to the nose. From that sinus, it also drains directly into the back of the throat.

Sometimes when I use eyedrops, my nose runs a little. At each corner of both eyes (4 points iirc, possibly only two.. per eye), there are entry-ways into the tear duct... excess tears drain there if necessary.

The worst part of it is when using prescription eye drops. Sometimes you get the always pleasant shock of tasting the damn drops. And boy, medicated eyedrops never taste good.
