Welcome to Just Answer:

It is possible that you are experiencing the symptom of autoimmune inflammatory eye condition such as abnormal thyroid function or orbital myositis (inflammation of the eye muscles). I suggest that you follow-up with your eye doctor for closer evaluation with tests including TSH, ANA, ESR, or C-reactive protein among others. In addition, the swollen eyelid should be evaluated closely to exclude chalazion, dermoid or dermolipoma. In the meantime, I suggest that you use over the counter Zaditor eye drop, and warm compresses twice daily.
