Do migraines cause temple arteries to bulge a bit ? Their not noticeable but i can feel them and they pulsate. I am 18. No pain when i touch them.

No: Temporal arteries should be palpable normally. Migraine is a vascular headache intra-cranially, yet tenderness can occur extra-cranially. Migraines are also uni-lateral, one side of the head; tension headaches and other varieties may be bilateral... Temporal arteritis (ta), an autoimmune disease, can cause tenderness along the temporal artery. ...Read more

Anger, maybe: In some people, temporal arteries may bulge when they're angry. There is also a condition called temporal arteritis which has little to do with stress, but everything to do with autoimmune response. It's usually found in people much older than 18. If concerned about yourself, please see your own physician for discussion and exam. Help for stress ; anger is available too, with psychologists. ...Read more

Ok well can TMJ cause problems like the temple artery to get thick/tough & bring on temple ha's my eyes have lil pain in them with all of this scared?

Most likely stress.: Most likely your pain is from bruxism(clenching or grinding your teeth). The amount of bruxing is directly proportional to the amount of stress you are under. "tmj" has become a catchall for all jaw pain. It actually refers to pain in the joint. Most other pain is due to muscle, teeth or nerves. There is a fine balance among all areas. You should see your dentist to determine the source. ...Read more
