Hi Lathika,

Thank you for the query here. The pain in leg which comes at rest is typically due to diabetic neuropathy. Please check with your doctor the status of your feet and nerve conduction if required. Otherwise taking tablet Gabapentin in appropriate doses and frequency will reduce this kind of pain.
Other reasons can be sciatica which happens in leg in certain position like walking on slope or lying down. Your doctor will be able to figure out whether the pain is neuropathic in nature or due to Neuronal problem like sciatica and in both the cases gabantin will work fine.
I hope you for your answer. Take care.
