A couple of things: Get your arthritis looked at and treated. Try to take your pain medication before you go to sleep and sleeping in a position that will not exacerbate the pain (support the knee with pillows)

See your doctor: You could have a host of issues that could cause your knee pain, could be bursitis, tendonitis, arthritis, ligament issues, meniscal injury, sciatica etc. So you may want to see an orthopedic pain specialist that can tell you what is going and help you with the latest treatments and exercise therapies available.
