After a couple of years being treated for neuropathy my GP now says I have arthritis in my knees and possibly a hip. I'm waiting for xrays.

I'm ok during the day and apart from slowing down a bit keep going as normal. At night I'm a mess. The pain in my right leg from the top to the ankle. This leg doesn't seem to be in the right position . It's sort of turning inwards,, though it's not obvious tilI try and exercise the leg and it won't move away from the body as it hurts too much. It's 3:45 now and I have yet to get to sleep.

A chap from my local Facebook page told me to try this site out as he found it useful.

I need ideas for getting to sleep.
