Sorry to now that . Has he tried any medications for this at all ?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
He has oxycodone acet. 5-325. He is not getting any relief.
Doctor: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 3 months ago

He will need a nerve pain medication like gabapentin or pregabalin for this but both are prescription medications so you will need help from your doctor there. If the pain isnt going away with oral drugs then he will need injectibles like tramadol , nalbuphine , morphine etc .

There is nothing much at home that would help so preferably you need to take him to ER .

I hope it answers your query.

Let me know if you have any further queries

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
