I have no constipation. I have no pain. It appears that I am crying and am not. It's a question I have always wondered about becuase my dad used to make fun of me for it. I was a small child when it begain and I am now 47 years of age.

ok then thats why I asked for how long u are getting this? Tear glands may get stimulated due to act of defaecation-bowel movement since childhood.You neednot worry about that as long as you donot have pain ,constipation,irregular bowel habit or any other problem in stools.

During chewing /eating ,this problem has a scientific/medical reason but during bowel movements it doesn't seem to be related with medical problem.There is treatment available in Homeopathy because it comes under peculiar symptom.Better you contact a good homeopath.
Take care.
