Dry socket is when there is exposed jaw bone in the socket.  The exposure of the jaw bone is cause for the pain.  Until the area heals up on its own, there isn't much anyone can do unfortunately.  The socket was packed and pain medications were prescribed.  You may want to consider stronger pain medication.
