Thanks for writing your query.

It will be helpful if give some information about :-
1. your sleep pattern.
2. Type of work you are doing.
3. Any feeling of anxiety or stress?
4. Any problem in vision?
5. Any history of cold or sinus infection?

There might be a possibility that you are having some stress or anxiety, giving you a feeling that the size of your forehead is changing.

Thanks for your response.

Avoid working continuously on computers for long durations. Have few minutes’ rest every hour while working, as this will relax the muscles.

I would suggest that you should get yourself examined medically at the time when the swelling is present.
Also, get an X-Ray PNS (Para Nasal Sinuses) done to rule out any sinus inflammation.

Try to get at least 6-8 hours sleep in the night. If due work you are not able to sleep at night, give rest to your body during daytime but I would suggest that night sleep is more beneficial.

I hope this answers your query. If you have any more queries, please mention.
