Swollen eyelids

For over a week, I have been waking up with swollen eyelids especially the right eye. Also , the bottom of this eye has been twiching. What could be the cause? Is the twiching and swelling related?

Hallo Miranda
It could be an allergy or a sign of fluid retention, please let your doctor rather have a look at the eyes and test your urine for protein. The twitching is often a sign of strain - try relaxing with a warm washcloth on the eye or try a muscle relaxant if it doesn't help.
