Dec 15, 2018 · Temporal Arteritis or Giant Cell Arteritis in Autoimmune Diseases

you sure are going through alot! I have a question for as I have alot o crazy symptoms yet to be diagnosed. One symptom Intracranial Hypertension which my neurologist thinks i might have but is scared to do a lumber puncture because it can cause alot of harm I guess. Nothing has turned up on the normal MRI and CT angiogram, so I am wondering how you got diagnosed. Basically I have been in bed for 4 months, I have right temple muscle that swollen (not tmj), if i go and try do anything like go to the store I get nauseous dizzy, and then the light and sound become strange and my body feels light sometimes, get tension headache and all head is sore to touch and lost some vision in right upper eye, my hears get plugged like on a plane. I am just asking because this seems pretty rare, and I am afraid to do anything now, any info would be appreciated and thanks

little scary now, because the the head tension is happening all the time now without doing anything. My ears are plugged (especially on the side i chew with I noticed)..it's like being on the plane and your ears plugged, but wayy worse. I am very fatigued to do anything now, before i had little more energy..blood tests say normal, but now I am learning by reading the blood tests are flawed for up 20 percent of people, (especially if you're under 50),,any info I would be grateful so when I go back to the doctor they are forced to look more..I am trying to be positive about it but i am having some pretty severe symptoms

I am 42 yr old, living in toronto who is desperate to get info so I can get diagnosed. I have had the normal blood tests to check twice ESR and creatine and they 2 doctors say I am to young to have it, but I have all the symptoms and nothing shows on brain MRI. Current symptoms after a bad virus they don't know what was, tension headaches on temples gradually getting worse over the past couples and more frequent (few times a day), and sometimes they are followed by TIA symptoms such as weakness of numbness in leg, arm, hands, pins and needles in finger tips, little vision problems, now my jaw and neck are getting quite stiff are times, like cracking and popping, but the usual tension is on temples both sides, extreme fatigue, nauseous, light headed at times. I was very active person before this all 3 months ago, but now if i do anything with a little exertion i get tension headaches followed by TIA (stroke)symptoms.. doctors treating it like a joke cause of age and nothing shows on normal blood tests. Has someone gone through this where it hows normal on blood tests? I am scared to death to try to do do anything active now, and any info I would grateful as you might save my life. So I can go back to doctors to force them to test more.

Hello, I read your comment and I am 42 similar age as you, and I am desperate for answers as doctors aren't being to helpful. Here's my situation I got some type of awful virus they don't know of for a couple months and all kinds of horrible symptoms. NOW past 2 months I have had tension headaches right at the temple gradually getting worse over the past couple months. I have been not active at all furing this 3 month period (was in great shape before), but now if i try to do anything like walk 5 blocks or do anything little active i get tension headaches followed by TIA symptoms. (weakness in leg or arm, numbness in parts f the body), also I am experiencing jaw and neck very stiffness alot, and of course i have been very fatigued all the time, I have slight vision problems, nausea disoriented, etc. Now here's the problem all the doctors i seen say can't happen cause my age and the blood tests come back normal 2 times over 2 month period. I am quite positive it is this. I am wondering how you got diagnosed, I am desperate for info as my symptoms are BAD, any info would be grateful and might save my life
