A woman has mystified doctors after she literally started crying tears of blood.

20-year-old Yaritza Oliva visited her doctor as soon as this strange condition started earlier this month. The doctor could not figure out what the cause is so she was sent home with some eye-drops.

Oliva says the pain of the condition is "indescribable". Her parents are seeking help for them to raise money to send their daughter to an eye experts.

"Please put your hands over your hearts, see our situation and help my daughter," her father pleaded.

Experts say it's possible Yaritza has a very rare condition called haemolacria, which causes sufferers to produce tears containing blood.

There are only THREE documented cases of the condition, which can be symptomatic of a more serious illness or a tumour - or caused by a high level of hormones in fertile women.
