I have noticed for some time that when I blow my nose AIR comes out of my left eye (lower area, close to tear duct). No lie... I have a terrible head cold now, and it concerns me that every time I blow my nose, my eye has air AND a very small amount of liquid discharge from it. Is there a problem with my upper respiratory tract that needs corrected? Or is this just some "Guinness World Record" oddity that can't be corrected or explained? Please help. FYI: I can make this happen when I don't have a cold by simply holding my nose and applying just a bit of air pressure. You can actually hear the air coming out of my eye. (The kids in my classroom think it's hilarious, and my son thinks it's weird.) I know this sounds far-fetched, but I'm really concerned. No online search of symptoms has lead to anything regarding this craziness. Thanks for any and all help...
