these symptoms don't sound like a blood clot
you could be having temporal arteritis inflammation of blood vessels in your temple area.
the bruise could have been from a broken blood vessel from high blood pressure, smoking, diabetes, aging, high cholesterol, diabetes, weakness of your blood vessels.
I don't think your cycling accident 8 years ago would be causing issues now.
do you have a doctor you can talk to about broken blood vessels?
are you on aspirin or coumadin or any other blood thinners?
