Does laying down make your neuropathy worse?

I agree with Ed that lying down increases the burning and churning. Also, semi-sitting with knees up for book-reading doesn't bother me. But at night, I've just tried CBD cream for two nights and it seems to increase the heat and burning. I wake up every two-three hours a night with burning, and have to take a tylenol, or nerve depressant ("Nerve Savior" or "Nerve Control 911" or Gabapentin. Rather than nap lying down, I sit up with my head on the back of the couch, and I sleep better with no burning.

Interesting thing. My neuropathy pain gets worse in the evening and more when I go to bed. I have noticed in my readings that a lot of people say they experience pain getting worse in the evening. So I don't know if it's lying down or something about our change in activity as the day progresses.I would like to hear from someone who has a night job. Their circadian rhythm is different.
