A 20-year-old male asked:
Can temporal arteritis subside or is it severe and gets worse? would the temporal artery not be pulsating?

Inflammation : Temporal arteritis is a disease of the elderly. Usually after 60 ys. It needs urgent medical attention and doesn't subside on its own. Temporal artery can still pulsate in the presence of arteritis. Best wishes.
