    I have been under lots of stress recently. However, when I read the news especially or whatever, I seem to start to cry sometimes. When I do, my eyes (one of the eyes - left or right) starts to hurt quite a bit. Does anyone else have these symptoms?

    I'd book an appointment with your GP. They'll be able to tell you more than people here on TSR

    GP's are useless these days, but thanks.

    Have you been viewing CNN or Buzzfeed?

    It's fake news, don't you know. Trump said so.

    My advice... lay off the news.
    I generally get eye ache due to less sleep or eyes being dry -maybe due to your crying?

    I mainly read the Daily mail and daily express and a few others including The Guardian!! I think brexit is making me cry as I have strong feelings regarding it and something else that I read that was upsetting. But no idea why my eye hurts.

    My left eye waters all the time no matter what

    I am getting it cauterised next week through my GP, perhaps an option for you too

    It's do-able though. Worth it if it stops you getting really emotional. I managed and only occasionally browse the news -by reading the headings. A lot of the stuff, you find out through people anyway.
    I feel bad encouraging you not to read the news, but seriously not reading it helps me :redface:

    Thanks for your advice. I have tried blocking ALL news websites on my laptop computer but of course it is easy to delete the extension on chrome. I think I need to tell myself: there is a lot of bad in the world, and whatever happens with brexit , I need to aim to not be moved by the news. So at least I can read it, but knowing every single news is propaganda. It is better to read the daily star, than the daily mail as there is less news in there, if that makes sense. Daily mail is very addictive.
