    Eye Air.

    Hmmm. For the past few days there has been an annoyingly
    high number of times that air has escaped from my eye. Like, I'll
    just be sitting there, looking at my wall -- then pssssss, air comes
    out my eye and my eyelid feels like it's 'bubbling.' It felt rather rad
    the first couple of times, but after 2 days of it happening every
    2-5 minutes, I've started to become kind of frustrated.

    I looked in the mirror while it was happening. I actually saw my
    eyelid flutter. Pretty cool.

    I've also noticed that I've been forgetting to put words in my
    sentences. On AIM, or in email. Wherever. I'll completely forget
    to put an entire word in there.

    Think I have a tumor?

    Jeez, that's a scary thought. Yeah, maybe it's not air at all, but
    some neurological disorder that's affecting my eyelid. Thanks
    for the extra worry, Fordy...

    Come to think of it, my head has been hurting a lot lately. It feels
    like my skull has tiny little fractures everwhere. Not unbearable
    pain, but it's present. Ooh, and I keep going almost-blind when I
    wake up, or just stand up. My vision goes almost completely
    dark for 1-2 seconds.

    Maybe it's the aspertame. I've been drinking diet soda exclusively
    for the past 2 years. At least 20 oz/day. Hmmm. Lawsuit. Yay!

    Eh, Doctors are expensive. I'm sure it'll go away. Besides, I turn
    21 tomorrow (March 11th. ). If I should I die, no biggie. I've
    lived a long life and have managed to accomplish everything I've
    wanted (well, almost everything. I still haven't finished Metroid
    Prime)...

    Sounds like what I have. Yet another reason why the internet
    is the greatest thing ever. I could have spent money going to
    some doctor, sat through hours of blood tests (even though the
    doctor would have known that they weren't necessary. Just trying
    to take my cash), and be given the exact same results Google
    gave me.

    I guess it's nothing too serious. Damnit...

    Eh, I'm probably too old to take advantage of the "Make a Wish" foundation, anyway.

    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    Clue #1: "high number of times that air has escaped from my eye."

    Clue #2: "I've also noticed that I've been forgetting to put words in my
    sentences."

    It is widely accepted that you are full of hot air. Putting both that knowledge and the previous two clues together, I have concluded from a sherlock-esque puzzle solving spree, that your brain is indeed leaking from your eye socket.

    Its nothing to worry about; It cant go on forever after all.

    Even I have been facing with the "eye fluttering" problem since the past 7 days or so. A search on the net got me this.
    I think it's because of the strain in my work I have been going through of late.
