: I have a tearing problem that seems to be getting worst all of the time. I was told when I was 18 years old that I had allergies but then it only was a sneezing problem, now I am 48 and only within the last couple of years have my eyes really began to tear very badly that sometimes I cannot see straight. I have been to an allergist and he can't figure out what is the problem. He has done test after test and says that he can't find anything so he gave me Allegra and Nasonex and they helped for a couple of weeks, I am still taking them but the problem has returned to where it was prior to taking them. I also have bags under my eyes which I didn't have prior to this tearing problem. I have always had a problem when the temperature gets cold and the wind would blow into my eyes, but now I can walk into a clothing store or almost any place and my eyes can fill with tears, that I can not see and I have to leave. Does anyone have any idea as to what may help, I have gotten tired of going to doctors who can not help.
