Would oxycodone relieve nerve pain? Particularly pudendal neuralgia?

In brief: Yes and No

Short answer is that any opiate or narcotic, oxycodone, hydrocodone, morphine etc, will help just about any pain.
But one develops rapid tolerance to such drugs and in time they become less effective. Most all neuralgias are much more effectively treated with more "nerve specific" meds like Gabapentin and carbamazepine.

A lot of pain issues overlap with myofascial patterns and thus are treatable and curable. See my New View file and began Acupuncture and MRT. IMO opiates will help burn the disease into the tissues and Gabapentin/antiseizures will just slow the burn-in process. Needles will help to cure the tissue disease.

In brief: Better choices

As was said there are better options than percet.

In brief: Not great

Recent studies have shown that chronic use of narcotic pain medicines could actually worsen pain by triggering and increasing inflammation.
