Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see a doctor, due to the risk of temporal arteritis. It is unlikely but can be serious and is treatable, so you should see a doctor to rule out this possibility.
Wish you good health!
