In brief: Xray and pain eval

Oxycodone is not a good medication for you anyway.
You will first need xray and full clinical exam to see why you have pains. There are other non-opioid pain meds and you doc may refer home exercise program and other modalities such as ice/heat. www.chrisohmd.com.

lidoderm patches, electrical stimulation, heat, ice, exercise ... all better than opiates for chronic pain.

In brief: Other options

You could try tramadol.
This is non narcotic and very effective.

In brief: See a specialist

See a reputable pain management physician who can help diagnose and treat the underlying condition that is causing your pain, rather than trying to mask it with medications.
