Everytime I yawn, water comes out of my eyes and then my nose becomes runny. Is this because I am sick? Does zyprexa (olanzapine) lower white blood cells, related?

Leukopenia is unrelated to these other symptoms. I can't find any references to why your eyes may get watery. Perhaps one of my other colleagues on the site will have some insight into that. Best wishes. ...Read more

There are multiple sinuses in your skull, above the nose and eyes, below the eyes, and between the eyes. They all drain into the nose. Any one or more of these sinuses can be affected with either sinusitis or an infection leading to pain and tenderness to touch.

This could also be a skin infection.

I recommend that you schedule an appointment with your physician for evaluation. ...Read more
