eye pain in both eyes - is it TN?

Has anyone ever experienced severe pain in both eyes? I had this for 3 months and it was constant - day and night. I saw my opthamologist weekly and every week we'd try a new medication and nothing worked. She was giving me test after test, including a brain MRI, and there was nothing to explain why I was in such pain. Even pain meds made no difference. She suggested a neuralogist but then the pain went away on its own so I never followed up with a neurologist. My brother suggested it might have been Trigeminal Neuralgia, but I couldn't find anywhere that this could cause the pain in both eyes. Has anyone ever had this experience?

Re: eye pain in both eyes - is it TN?

My sister had TN for several years (had surgery to relieve it) and she never complained of this. If it was TN, it would not have gone away.
