vascular temple pain can be from giant cell arteritis inflammation of the artery or veins in your temple area.
you would need to see a doctor or rheumatology expert to get a biopsy of one of these blood vessels in your temple area
that would be able to show blood vessel inflammation which could be causing your pain there .
there are blood tests which can look for inflammation in your body as well such as ESR or C reactive protein
steroid medications can often calm down inflammation in these vessels which could help.
do you have a doctor you can see for these tests?
