Do u have jaw pain on chewing or scalp tenderness while combing your hair? It could be GCA. Get your ESR test done. (Simplest test) If high could indicate active giant cell arteritis. Else meet your Neuro.

It could be a case of Giant cell arteritis . Diagnosis can be confirmed only by biopsy and histopathology. Consult any Neuro opthalmologist nearby.
