Leaking Tear Duct (?) When I Blow My Nose

So I have asked all of my co-workers and family if they've ever heard of this or had this issue and they all agree, no.
Every time I blow my nose, liquid forcefully comes out of my left eye on the inside.
Is this normal? This has happened ever since I can remember.
Another issue is, I have had horrible migraines since grade school...
Could these two issues be related?

Hello and hope you are doing well.

There is a duct or tube which connects the eyes to the nose. The nasolacrimal duct (sometimes called the tear duct) carries tears from the lacrimal sac in the eye into the nasal cavity. That's the reason every time we cry, there's a discharge from the nose. Now, there is a back flow which is happening in your case. It's unlikely to be related to migraine. Check for lacrimal sac infections.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
