Hopefully, your situation has resolved, as I can see the question was asked four months ago.  

In any case, it is impossible to offer a meaningful answer without more history.  Did you have double eyelid surgery recently?  Does the situation involve one or both upper eyelids?  Are you swollen or allergic?  A photograph would also help.
