Brief Answer:
Get examined and evaluated by a neurologist

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have gone through your question and understand your concern.
Intermittent diplopia and weakness may be linked to myasthenia gravis or Lambert Eaton syndrome.
Knee joint pain is unlikely to be associated with it and requires evaluation for any ligament injury or arthritis.
Involuntary movement of legs during sleep is a common phenomenon and doesn't requires any treatment if not bothersome.
Evaluation and examination by a neurologist is advised.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Do get back to me for further information.
