it started suddenly with no warning, and was over about 10 minutes later. i have to say no to all your questions except about the high blood pressure i dont dont know the answer if i ever had high blood pressure. i would not worry about it if the pain woulnd had been so bad and that i felt in that moment
Thanks for information.

As this pain was first time & it did go away so it does not look to be serious .commonly such pain above eye does occur due to-


2.In case of infection of conjunctiva

3.Inflammation of eye lid

4.Inflammation & infection in sinuses above eye.

5.Increase pressure in eye as in glucoma.

Except one most of the other reasons does have persisted pain & does not relieve with treatment .You should do following to have relief & prevent it from recurring-

1.If you do feel it frequently then have a complete evaluation wiuth the help of some investigation like MRI/CT OF BRAIN,ROUTINE HEMOGRAM,OPHTHLMOLOGICAL & ENT CHECK UP.

2.You may have a mild anti inflammatory analgesic like tylenol or advil for few days.

3.Take complete physical & mental rest.

4.Avoid excessive intake of tea,coffee & alcohol.

5.Do daily physical exercise & yoga.

Hope this will be helpful.
