Thank you, I have headache sometimes (but I don't think severe). The left side is now more swollen (Especially the jaw). Any burning sensation in head? 3. Any fever? No fever, but my left side jaw feels hot 4. Weight loss? No 5. Nausea or vomiting associated? No What is an ESR? I had a radio a few months ago of the sinus (when I started to have pain on my left eye) at the otorynolaryngologist but they didn't see anything and the pain stopped after a week. The eye doctor didn't see anything (only that I need glasses) so now I focus on a neurologist. Should I? thank you for your help and advice!!

Brief Answer: Detail Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear Friend. I don't think it is related to Sinusitis. Jaw Claudication and temporal arteritis is still a possibility. Get the investigations i have advised. ESR is Erythrocyte Sedimentation rate. It is a cheap blood test and a marker of inflammation. Its is very high in Temporal Arteritis. I would be really very happy to hear from you with these investigations. Stay Healthy
