I know everyone is in a different stage of AF. My AF this time was constant high cortisol for 3 years. Although sometimes when I did start bringing it down I would have a little tireness in the morning. I am not sure what my BP was when I was high cort, I wish I had checked it. Now that my cort is more down it's low. Anyway you might not have high cortisol but maybe it's the lymph system and detox system is slow because of the AF. Let me know if you figure it out. I have been taking lymph draining herbs and I don't see much effect on the fluid that is left around my eye. I am going to start taking Milk Thistle and see if that does anything.
