Brief Answer: Hi Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for posting your query on XXXXXXX If you think that you have temporal arteritis, then you need to visit an emergency room and get treatment rightaway. They will also do some blood tests including ESR levels. If the ESR level is high then it suggests temporal arteritis. Anyways the doctor will be able to examine you and prescribe you the treatment (steroids) for it. Though it is comparatively an uncommon type of headache, it is important to get help rightaway. Take care Dr Vaishalee
