In brief: There are many

Temporal arteritis(ta) is an inflammation of the arteries.
The signs and symptoms are related to the location of the inflammation. This inflammation leads to swelling of the internal canal of the artery resulting in decreased blood flow. Arteries of the head and neck are most commonly involved. Severe headache, jaw pain, scalp tenderness, visual loss, sometimes fever, weight loss, muscle aches.

In brief: Temporal arteritis

Headache, the most common symptom, usually begins early in the course of the disease and is present in at least two-thirds of patients.
Initially the headache may be the only presenting symptom with the temporal and occipital regions being the most common locations. Tender spots or nodules may be present in the scalp, especially over inflamed arteries.
