I have the exact same symptoms! My eyes are worse in the AM and seem to be directly related to the meals I ate the day before... high starch/sugar = bad morning!
Any type of bread is my worst enemy.
I have been on a candida/ restrictive diet for 3 mos and seem to be doing well (eye swelling has decreased)... although I did fall off the diet the for a few days and really suffered in the mornings.
ThreeLac seemed to get the ball rolling for me, but has seemed to decrease in effectiveness - so I have stopped and started on Florastor, which seems to be working well. I figure to stay on Florastor for a couple bottles and go back to ThreeLac so the little bugs do not get too used to one product.
The diet has been rough on me as I have lost more weight than I feel comfortable with... I have since added 2 protein shakes/ day with only 1g of sugar/ serving.
Please keep me informed of how you are doing and what you are doing... you are the only person I have come across with the same symptoms.
