Hmmmmm..... this is very interesting.

I believe the best place for you to go is to consult with a neurologist. She will be able to test the nerves on your face and determine why you are feeling these ghost-tears.

The good news? This is unlikely to be anything serious, like a brain tumor etc, and will most likely resolve itself in time.

Does this make sense to you?
