Hello, my right eye started watering in October. First doctor visit P.A, he said I had a cold, take mucinex. After 3 weeks and a whole bottle of Mucinex, my right eye was still watering. Next doctor, M.D., said it was a cold, she gave me nothing. Dry eye, rinse it out daily. Did not work. End of November, I finally have a sinus infection, sore throat, wheezing. December, this doctor M.D., thought I needed cordicosteriods, or in other words a nose spray. I refused. This doctor reluctantly gave me Zithoramax. Heavy duty antibiotic, that got rid of the gross sinus infection, sore throat and wheezing to a point. I decided to get my air conditioner replaced, filters changed each month and air ducts cleaned thinking something inside my home was causing it. Allergies maybe, even though I had never had anything like this before as far as my right eye watering. Not wheezing at all 99.%. However, my right eye still waters in the morning, during working out, after the shower, while I am trying to put on make up, all day long, it looks like I am crying all the time and family, friends and co-workers all wonder what is wrong. Finally, in January (4 months)next doctor M.D., reads my file, and thinks I have a serious bacteria infection inside my sinus cavity. He gave me doxicycline, had me get rid of any old eye drops to stop reinfection, toothbrush, wipe down everything on 4th day. Eye stopped watering. Four months later.. another sinus infection, and the watering eyes came back. I went to an Eye Doctor this time. He put a florencent die in my eye, waited 5 minutes had me blow my nose to see if the blue light could see the florencent dye. He looked down my throat and said, I have a drainage problem with my eyes. The dye was in my eye, not in my nose or throat like it should be. He gave me another doze of Doxicycline. Hopefully this will do the trick. Also, I do have an under activity throid. I am doing research on the relationship to that and watering eyes too. Because this time both my eyes are watering and it has been a month. Wish me luck that this double dose of doxicycline will fix the watering eye issue again. If not, I am thinking maybe there is some sort of corrilation with the thyroid and the infection or lack of drainage. Maybe this can help some others out there. Next, if this does not work I will ask for different thyroid medicine. I am currently taking a low dose of armor thyroid. The natural kind, no synthetics. Perhaps too high for my underactive thyroid or maybe it works too good.... Specutalation, but something has to be the culprit, just searching for answers and giving ideas for others to check out. Hope my situation helps you. Good Luck!
