Eyebrow developed pain after flying. Is it due to altitude change?

I was flying on a small 10 passenger cessna from cape cod to boston- returning back to denver following 2 week vacation. During descent i got an excruciating sharp pain in my left eyebrow. Never happened before, lasted about 10 seconds. Now 8 hrs later it aches only very slightly but thats about it. I am 39 yrs old. Could it have come from altitude change? I dont have any other symptoms not even a lingering headache . Dont experience migraines typically and this has never hppened to me prior to today. What could it be? No blurry vision

Welcome to Health care magic

The symptoms of headache and pain in the eyebrow can be because of your altitude change and flying in.
This will resolve slowly as the time progresses once the effect comes down.
Since no other symptoms suggesting of migraine are not there, hence no need to worry.

Thank you for writing to HCM.
