In brief: Giant cell arteritis
Also known as temporal arteritis as pain in the temple area is a symptom, other possible symptoms could be vision related.
If there is an index of suspicion a blood test called ESR or sedimentation rate is done and often a temporal artery biopsy is recommended. Steroids are used to treat.
