    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    I've been reduced to think that this is some kind of evolutionary survival technique. Our eyes water in order to keep out the dangerous vapors the aerosolize from our urine. The watering merely keeps us from going blind.
    In all seriousness, the last time I saw my gynecologist she challenged me with saying, "You can't shock me with anything, I've heard it all". In all fairness she said this in response to another problem I was having, but after hearing her say that I mentioned that I have the issue of my eyes tearing up when I urinate, to which she told me she had never heard of it. I've thought of consulting a urologist, but since I've had it my whole life and it doesn't cause me any pain or other problems, it is VERY low on my list of priorities. If anyone else finds any answers, I would very much like to know.
