No

OK Joyce. Any headache that's lasted this long necessitates a doctor taking a look at you. This could be a tension type headache from neck muscle spasm or perhaps a headache from a sinus infection, but if the pain is specifically in your temple it could be a rare disorder called temporal arteritis which is an inflammation of the temporal artery. I don't think it's a problem with a brain aneurysm from what you've told me, but I would get an MRI of your brain to check for that
