Suspicion of temporal arterius. Blood work negative for lupus. Is flying and sun tanning safe?

I am not sure I have Temporal Arterius but I will be having a CT Scan and MRI completed next week.. My Neurologist took a lot of blood work last week which all was negative to diseases such as Lupus but would Temporal Arterius have been diagnoised with the blood work I too? Also is flying and sun tanning harmful with temporal aretrius or any other blood vessel problem ?
