Brief Answer:
not emergency

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome. This can happen if blood pressure is temporarily raised or when head vessels dilate due to environmental changes,emotional stress or hormonal imbalance. This is not somethings serious or require urgent medical help. Just measure your blood pressure to rule out extreme values. Only if some other symptoms occur such as vision disorders, intensive headache or dizziness,then you can seek medical assistance. Wish you good health. Regards
