temporal arteritis symptoms 24?

Seen a doc about this already, everything seemed normal, blood pressure normal, said I had TN but I had mentioned the veins in the side of my forehead, I recall him saying there's probably little to worry about. Still I'm not totally convinced, if any docs are online now... do you think this should be a concern of mine, or would you agree with the doc.

Do smoke 24M, 5'7, 9 stone.

I assume you have read the Cleveland Clinic's material about temporal arteritis? It's pretty clear and straightforward.

Just to say, there aren't doctors on this forum.

Yeah I get that, but still forum users can sometimes give advice.
I was just responding to you asking if any docs were online to answer your question.  I could be wrong, but I don't recall any actual doctors posting on this forum.
