I woke up yesterday and I noticed that the outer corner of my left upper eyelid hurt. It hurt everytime I either touched it or closed my eye really hard. The night previous to this, my little cousin spent the night and I was hoping it was because he hit me during his sleep (I don't know if that is helpful). Then yesterday, I went to my sister's house and the pain was the same. Some time during the evening we left to play soccer and that's where my brother-in-law accidentally hit me in the face with the ball pretty hard. After that when we got back home, the pain in my eyelid was more severe. Now it occurred every time I blinked. I went to sleep thinking that the pain would go away. I woke up not only with the same pain, but also with a swollen outer half of the eyelid. I started to google "swollen eyelids" and I came across several possible causes and that's when I started to get a little scared. I would really appreciate any possible help.
