Sore swollen eyelids and a sore throat, what can cause them?

Viral infection. The combination of sore throat and swelling with irritation in the eyes is highly suggestive of a viral infection (pharyngitis plus conjunctivitis) for which there is no known treatment that will cure it. Standard advice is to stay well hydrated (drink plenty of fluids), take Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen for the pain, and apply hot/wet compresses to your eyes. Then just add a tincture of time.

Pink swollen eyelid, sore throat/cold. Dr said stye, but there is no bump at all! Just an overall swelling/pain. Incorrect diagnosis perhaps?

Probably right. Most styes start out with diffuse swelling of a part or sometimes the whole lid. As your body starts to deal with it, it becomes localized to the more typical focal redness and swelling. I hope you were told to apply heat 4-5 times per day which is in face the best treatment.
