In brief: Sinus congestion

When discomfort in the head or temple area as you describe occurs upon postural changes then, the most likely explanation is that of increased pressure in the head causing expansion of fluid which may be in your sinuses.
You didn't mention headaches or visual issues so i don't think it's anything more serious. Be on the watch for other symptoms to report though to your doctor. All the best.
