As long as I can remember I have woken up every morning with a lot of fluid built up under both of my eyes. I have tried everything is solve this problem but nothing has helped. This is occurring every night regardless of where I am at or how I am sleeping, what I ate, etc. I have seen a skin specialist who had never heard of swelling every night. I am going to see an eye doctor in two days. I have heard it could be lymph fluid, but why is it happening every night? Is there ANYTHING I can do to solve the root of the problem? I do sleep with my head elevated, I use caffeine, eat a diet low in salt, etc etc etc. I just would like to get to the root of the problem. My mom does have polycystic kidney disease. Could it be a blocked gland? Thanks
