Default Chronic face pain, couldbe TN

Just wanted to tell me story. After about 4 years in the NHS system looks like i'm getting close to finding out my problem. Have suffered for quite a few years now with what feels like pressure around my eyes and nose, making my eyes feel tired, plus tinnitus. Combine this have made me feel awful for the last few years. After seeing my doctor and initially being dismissed, visits to different opticians to check my eyes, finally another doctor sent me to the audiology at the hospital. They gave me a white noise generator for the tinnitus, but i had to pursuade them for months that the face pain was related to the face pain. Finally they sent me to ENT. After a cat scan of my sinuses and MRI of inner ear area being all good, the specialist there said he belived i had chronic face pain. Now at last i'm going to see a neurologist. As i understand it, TN causes face pain, and although it appears it is rarer to be around the eyes and nose, and on both sides of the face, i do feel i'm getting somewhere.
