A member asked:

I have facial pain, visual disturbances, dizziness, low fever, sore neck, tinnitus, slight ear leakage both sides. docs weren't very concerned, normal retina. how unlikely is temporal arteritis at 21?

Almost non-existent: Temporal arteritis is a vascular disorder seen in a far older age group, and would be associated with elevation of sed rate and/or c reactive protein. Your symptoms might more likely suggest sinus issues, or perhaps dental condition. Doubt temporal arteritis.

Very unlikely,: Not even a possibility at age 21!
