Squirting eye: 1st, it is probably normal..EVERYONE has tiny tubes the carry our tears away from our eyes and down into the nose aided by gravity...That's why our nose runs when we cry..If you blow your nose and that pressure pushes from your nose backwards , that pressure can push the tears backwards and back where they started, in your eyes..Then they have to start that journey all over again...So relax ...Read more

Been having pressure n my face between my nose & eyes runny nose, cough, lightheaded when blowing my nose it's kinda green alil? No fever no aches!

Good old cold!: Sounds like you have a good ol' cold. Congestion from the cold gives that pressure feeling, and the drainage can cause the cough. Kinda green means the body is sending white blood cells to fight the infection - that's a good thing. Since no fever or aches, doubt influenza or sinus infection. Wait 10-14 days with symptomatic care (humidifier, saline rinses of sinuses...) and if not better, doctor. ...Read more

When i blow my nose  i feel liquid squirting up from the corner of my eye close to my nose. What causes that is it normal ?

It can be normal: Your tear drainage system is connected from your eye/eyelid to your nose. If you close of the exit of the tear drain in your nose when blowing your nose, some people can experience a reflux of fluid back through the punctum in their eyelid. It is usually nothing to be concerned about. If the liquid is bloody or yellow/green, have an ophthalmologist evaluate it. ...Read more
