Woman in Chile cries tears of blood

Doctors have been baffled by the case of a young Chilean woman who appears to cry tears of blood.

20-year-old Olivia not only weeps tears of blood but also complains of 'indescribable' pain in her eyes. The strange affliction started earlier this month and doctors initially believed she was suffering from an extreme case of conjunctivitis. As time has gone on however symptoms have continued and nobody has been able to offer a solution to help cure her condition.

Cases of crying blood are rare but not unheard of with some cultures assigning religious or spiritual significance to the condition. Far from being a sign from above however it is more likely that Olivia is suffering from haemolacria or some other rare medical condition characterized by bleeding from the eyes.

"A 20-year-old Chilean woman has told of the "indescribable" pain she has experienced since she began weeping tears of blood."

hey how do you post an article so that it shows up on the home page? I think The Man probably picks and chooses those.

hey how do you post an article so that it shows up on the home page? You/we can't. Saru is the only one who can post articles on the home page. I think The Man probably picks and chooses those. Correct.

Is it actually blood? I know when rats are stressed they cry red tears, but it's not blood. What's her occupation? If she was a scientist, had she ever came into contact with some sort of test material?

From what I gather it's a very rare condition, and not fully understood. Hopefully no sustainable damage to her eyes. The crap we humans have to go through sometimes, makes me cry...

Does her eye blood type match her body blood type?

Is her eyes always blood shot? Maybe she got an tear in her eye's protective film, the blood from her blood shot eyes are seeping out and making it look like she is bleeding. It would describe the pain and the blood. :\

There's a girl in India who cries crystals. I'm betting it's much more painful than this. This woman can now get a part in True Blood, and not even need special effects
