Why Is Ostearthritis Pain Worse At Night?

I am an 80 year old female diagnosed w/osteoarthritis. Symptoms began with feeling of ants crawling on legs at night. Pain began in lower back, left lower back went to upper legs, left upper legs went to lower legs, is this normal? Why does pain worsen at night?
