If it's in the temple (whether you're Jewish or not) it might be concerning. It's only been 2 hours so somewhat early to draw conclusions- so take some ibuprofen and see how it goes. Press around the temple area for any tenderness. If it's tender then you should probably see a doctor, especially if your vision in that eye changes. If it persists or worsens today see someone (no, not Aunt Flo).
