My tears come when I sit for long toilet. I am in good health and so far no known cases of any. Health problem. Is this normal?

In brief: Tears
This is not a lot to go on, but I have 2 suggestions.
1) could be part of stimulation of the nerves that control the bowels, particularly if you have constipation or cramps. 2) it may be simple sadness. Going to the toilet is a very private, quiet time, when often we reflect on our lives; it there are some heavy issues in your life, this is a time when they might be expressed in tears.

In brief: Please explain more
Do you mean that tears come because you have a great deal of pain when you sit on the toilet a long time, or do you mean that tears come because you become sad? If you are having pain, could you please explain further - where is the pain? Is it around your anal area, or is it abdominal, or somewhere else? Are your bowel movements normal? Do you have any blood or other symptoms?
