Possibly. One condition is called temporal arteritis

- I'm not sure what you mean by "def external", but some sinus infections do respond to heat, and can manifest as temple pressure.
- there are many many kinds of migraine. Some do not cause pain (called "silent migraine"), some can be constant/chronic (Status Migraine or Status Migrainosus, though not usually as long duration as yours), and there are some migraine disorders that are triggered by viruses (I have a condition called "chronic tension-type headache/migraine complex - sudden onset" that came about during a virus cold that was a reactivation of Epstein-Barre virus [mononucleosis] from when I was a teen.)
- usually much shorter duration, but can present as temple pressure.
chronic daily headache
- a large group of headache sub-types.
There seem to be quite a few people reporting similar symptoms to yours, and other possible causes, when I googled: chronic temple pressure
If you can find one, I'd try to find a neurologist whose practice is specialized in/limited to just headaches. I went to several neurologists who just didn't know enough about some very specific headache conditions, then I found one they called "the headache guy" and he DXed me with 3 questions (and was correct).
