Cronic Pain With Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. Please Help!

I was diagnosed with Ehlers Dan Los Syndrome  a bit over 2 years ago. It causes reacuring dislocations. Mostly in my right hip and knee. And constant strains of ligaments and tendons. Both of which obviously cause extreme pain. and makes it so i now am in a wheelchair. Right now I'm on oxycodone 5mg tablets. They don't work what so ever for my pain. I've been doing research and many of the people with my disorder are on the fentanyl patch. I'm considering asking my doctor to put me on it. but  I'am wondering if he'll even do it
