Swollen eyelid?

I'm freakin out a bit I woke up this morning
And my eyelid is swollen. This is very similar to
My first flare. My eye dr had been checking my
Eyes often because of spots from inflammation
Now this. So do I call the eye dr or my gi?
Or both? Or maybe it's just nothing.. A little
Advice please


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.
