Do you have any other symptoms, itchy, blurry vision, sensitivity to light, etc?

I think I would first give a check with the eye doctor if things do not get better on their own in the next 24h. Maybe see a pharmacist to get eye drop or gel?

My eyelids swell regularly. They're a mess from CD. Most likely they are really dry while you are sleeping. Try some preservative free artificial tears before bed & in the morning. I have more tips if that doesn't help.
