In brief: Neuropathic pain

I would consider adding medications for neuropathic pain (neurontin, lyrica, (pregabalin) cymbalta).
You may benefit from injections. Oxycontin (or any opioid) does nothing to address the "source" of the pain, it simply blocks the brain from feeling it. I suggest seeing apain specialist in your area.
