Suffering from temporal arteritis. Sharp pain in the face, in ear, feverish, fatigue. Travel by flight?

I think I may have TEMPORAL ARTERITIS I have had a sharp pain on my left side of face, above ear into ear, dizzy, feel sick to stomach , feverish at times, fatigue . My problem is I am in the UK and should be flying back to the states in two weeks. Would I be ok to fly or should I see a dr here before I fly. I did take asprin today, as I read that helped - is there anything else I can do?

Temporal arteritis is an unlikely diagnosis. Do consult a doctor here and it could be a symptom of sinusitis or middle ear infection or fluid collection in middle ear.
