Possible TN?

I wear a dental partial on the left side of my mouth. About 2 wks. ago I started having pain on the jaw bone where the partial sits. I stopped wearing the darn thing but the pain has persisted. I saw my dentist yesterday as I also had a toothach in the eye tooth where the partial hooks on. He did an x-ray and could see nothing wrong. I have been on antibiotics for six days now and one would think if my problem was an infection it would have started to clear up. But the pain is worse, but in the palate and not the tooth.However, on my palate he said the tissue above the tooth was puffy and there was an abraision of sorts. He referred me to a endo to evaluate the tooth. However in reading about TN I think that's a distinct possibility. My cheek aches, my left eye is watery and blurry and I had frequent headaches before the gum issue. I had suffered from the classical form of TN in the past accompanied by the cheek ache. I am going to put off seeing the endo because who wants a root canal when this could be TN. Any advice would be appreciated.
