Pulled/Aggravated somthing between my eyebrow and my eye.
Its in the corner area near the outer corner. I googled tear gland and looked at the pics and its exactly where i feel it.
Well i was just blinking normally and i felt somthing wierd above my right eye about where the eyebrow is. I told my eye doctor last time it happened. I told her i was forcing my tears out by not blinking cause i felt somthing in my eye. Well couple minutes after that i blinked and felt somthing wierd, short while after it had a feeling of inflammation up there or swelling. Felt normal again after a day or 2. She said the tear glands are about behnid the eybrows where you produce tears and forcing my tears to come out like that is bad.
And it just happened again just now while i was blinking and tearing while i was yawning it feels inflamed again.
I also should mention this past 2 days ive been feeling sinusitis symptoms. Pressure building up behnid eyebrows forhead, sides of head. Runny nose. Feeling of wetness drippin down my throat and sensations in my head once ina while. And like last week i kinda had a ear infection and had fluid in my ear with swollen membrane and my hearing was a little off in my left ear. The doctors told me to try n take some decongestants and it worked my ear is better. They said i might be have a Viral Infection thats causing it.
Sinus congestion is a stuffy pressure feeling, this area feels more like inflammation. When i wake up in the mornings its usually gone and it feels normal. Just at times it flares up this past while.
Dont know if these things would be related but I appreciate any help/answers. Thanks.

oh yeah and i just went to my doctor today for my sinuses and got nasal spray for it but i forgot to mention this.

  • I already saw my opthalmologist 3 times this month not concerning this and everything in my eyes is fine. I mentioned this on my first visit. She said the area where im describing is where the tear gland is. I told her i was holding my eyes open and forcing my eyes to tear then i started blinking and then thats when it first happened. I felt somthing weird then few mins later i got a feeling of inflammation in that area.She just told me to stop forcing my tears out and use eyedrops or flush with water if i feel somthing in my eye. She asked how long it lasted and i said the feeling was gone the day after.I just got it again earlier and the swelling/inflammation feeling built up then slowly wore off after a couple hours.Its annoying, no clue what it is but seems to aggravate it whenever my tears dont come normally. (btween right eye and eyebrow)
