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?

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.
