eyes watering

Do any of your eyes water constantly? I always feel like i have tears in my eyes. and i always have my kids call it (CHEESE) in my eyes. My face hurts too. I only feel great when my eyes are closed. then i have no choice but to fall asleep. I'm getting tired of sleeping. I love you guys. You make me feel better. You know what my husband said? He said that he knew what was wrong with me, he said that someone had put a curse on me . I think he is more desparate than me. have any of you tried hypnosis?

Becca, do you find your eyes water ALL the time, or JUST AFTER BOTOX, for example? My eyes get the "unsatisfactory tears" (we have 2 types of tears) after botox when the water just constantly runs down my face - these don't lubricate my eyes at all. Only the other type of tear (the right type) lubricate. Just curious!

I don't think they are the good kind of tears. the outer corner of my eyes feel sticky. and i had real bad alergies and took lots of benedryl and come to find out that is not good for my condition.

Hi Becca, Sounds like your husband needs to read this bulletin board, too. I basically read it to my husband at times or just tell him what I heard or read on the bb that day. My family has learned that my symptoms are very similar to many others and are therefore more accepting and understanding of my problems and limitations.
My eyes tear more when my botox is wearing off and right after injections until the botox starts working. It is at this time that I have a lot of squeezing of my eyelids and they just feel tired and uncomfortable and irritated. It's like the tight squeezing literally forces the tears out of my eyes. It ia also at this time that I find myself rubbing my eyes more and constantly wiping away the tears.
When it started happening this last time again (I've needed botox for a couple of weeks now) I decided to use the lacrilube ointment around my eyes instead of in them. I just put a little on my fingertips and wipe a thin layer of the ointment all around my eyes. It has cut way down on the irritation around my eyes. They are still squeezing closed but with the ointment on, the tears don't seem to irritate around my eyes as much and I'm not constantly rubbing them. I use a little heavier layer at night and if it gets in your eyes, its no big deal cause that is where it is supposed to go anyway.
I know what you mean about being uncomfortable except when you are lying down and relaxing. I get so tired of fighting to keep my eyes open and like you, if I lie down and close them, the spasms stop and I can relax. And then I get stressed as I'm not getting anything done. I do have to take frequent breaks, though, and just lie down and rest.
Tell your husband that there must be a whole slew of us with curses put on us. Does he have any idea what we did wrong to be cursed? He needs to do some reading.

Shirley in AR. who doesn't feel cursed and you shouldn't either.

Hi, Shirley!

My eyes generally feel sticky or occasionally gritty rather than tear-filled, but I think the lacrilube ointment might help me because the eyelids are delicate and irritated, in part from being held open when I watch TV. (I always miss the best parts because that's when the eyes decide to close). Can I buy the ointment over the counter or do I have to get a doctor's prescription?

Thanks,
Carol

Carol, You can get it over the counter. I'm sure any of the eye ointments would work that are meant to be used in your eyes. So many other creams and lotions burn or I can't seem to use around my eyes even when they say that they are for the delicate eye area, but this has worked great.
