the arteries in the sides of my temples are swollen. They go down but not all the way flat at night, but in the daytime they are swollen. The nerve in near the temple that comes out of the process was pushed on very hard at one time, and the temporal arteries were pressed on hard in many spots and the the assailants twisted their thumbs back and forth on the arteries. There is a pulse in the arteries.
I do not know if with giant cell arteritis if the arteries stay swollen at all times, even at night, or if they go down and then swell up again. There is some tenderness on one side, but no fever, or other symptoms beyond some eye discomfort that may be coming from the allergy that I have, and a dental issue. ????????
