What could it be/mean if my right side of my face & left hand are swollen when I wake up? I'm also in pain and stiff every morning. But not my face.

In brief: Rheumatoid arthritis

Sounds very much like rheumatoid arthritis.
But you may have other autoimmune or systemic diseases (lupus or psoriasis) or infectious diseases (parvovirus b19, hepatitis c, lyme, etc). So you definitely need to see a doctor for evaluation and treatment.
