ugh. what an unintentionally poetically lame subject line, but its true.

my own tears sting my eye balls, and this has been the case for the past few years now.

is this normal?

what could be wrong?

Yep. I have never had this sort of a problem. So count me as one piece of evidence that your experience is not normal.

I would agree it is possibly dry eye. My tears hurt all the time...an unusual amount of salene [sic?] was in them. However, I'm at a loss for why yours would only hurt when you are crying in thr sad sense.

I have very sensitive eyes - I attribute it to them being dry, though it acutally oftem means they tear up in a slight breeze. I can't remember the last time I really cried, but when sweat gets in my eyes it burns a lot.

Immune response

most likely. Try some anti immune eye drops and see what happens.
