It seems to be nerve related as only the nerve pain can be so severe without any swelling, redness or inflammatory signs. There can be many reasons one of them is nerve compression or irritation. Since painkillers are not working i would recommend you to get it examined by a doctor to confirm the diagnosis and get a strong painkiller like tramadol to be effective. You can apply capsaicin cream over it and it is available OTC.

Hope this helps.
