Arteritis is an inflammation of the arteries, generally in response to infection or as an immune process. When talking about temporal arteritis, sometimes referred to as giant cell arteritis or GTA, the inflammation is of arteries in the neck or head region. The temporal name attached to such an inflammation is a result of the throbbing pain at the temples. Temporal arteries are usually affected the most with this particular form of arteritis. As with any circulatory condition, temporal arteritis can be quite serious if left untreated. Specifically, if left untreated Temporal Arteritis can cause aneurysms, serious impairments, and sometimes fatalities.
Individuals which are between the ages of 50 to 60 have shown more cases of Temporal Arteritis than those younger. This is not to say that such cases have not occurred, but that such cases are rare. Men are less suitable than women to develop the condition. Ethnicity and environment also weigh greatly on the probability that one may develop temporal arteritis showing that Caucasians are more at risk than other ethic groups.
There are several factors to consider when determining if you have Temporal Arteritis. If you suspect that you may have this condition, you are advised to seek the diagnosis of a doctor or a practitioner. The following symptoms are common in patients that have developed Temporal Arteritis.
As your temples are located beside your eyes, any inflammation may cause you to have blurriness or loss of vision. If you have noticed a decrease in your vision or if you have developed black spots within your vision you may have temporal inflammation.
If you notice any arteries bulging or becoming more pronounced than regular, you may have inflammation. Do not poke or prod the area of inflammation but seek medical attention immediately to ensure that you do not have a rupture in that area.
Pain in the temporal area as well as pain in the jaw may be an indicator that you have temporal arteritis.
If you suffer from any of these symptoms or a combination of these symptoms then you are encouraged to get the professional advice of a doctor or practitioner.
Negligence and malpractice claims for temporal arteritis can be filed if a patient was not diagnosed or if false diagnosis was given and the condition became present or worse from such diagnosis. If symptoms which are common in those suffering from temporal arteritis were not detected and/or tested for GCA than you may have a claim. This is especially true if you have suffered further conditions as a result of the malpractice or negligence. Conditions which can develop or become amplified due to not treating or identifying a temporal arteritis condition include visual loss or impairments, weakened arteritis resulting in a lifetime need for medications or extensive treatments, cardiovascular diseases, and in some cases fatalities due to abdominal aneurysm ruptures.
If you have been diagnosed with temporal arteritis and have shown the symptoms for some time, and a practitioner, medical staff, or doctor failed to diagnose you with the condition, you may have a claim.
If you have developed additional conditions because of a misdiagnosis or because of improper treatment of your Temporal Arteritis, you may have a claim.
If an immediate family member has died from a ruptured aneurysm due to a temporal arteritis condition which was not detected, you may have a claim.
As with any case of negligence, time is not on your side. The quicker you file your claim the more apt you are to win your case. Compensation on these claims vary depending on the case, but all compensation is greatly dependent upon the timeframe in which you have filed your case. There is also a time limit to these claims.
If you are undergoing treatment for your current Temporal Arteritis condition you are encouraged to continue your treatment. Do not try to heighten your condition for your claim. Remember temporal arteritis is a serious condition that can result in other health conditions and death if mistreated or amplified. If you feel like your current treatment is in negligence, you are encouraged to seek the services of another professional doctor or practitioner. Your health should be your main concern.
