Pain and insomnia

I have pain at times down both arms and legs. The neck pain is now mostly at night and I just can’t sleep. My left hand goes numb every time I nearly fall asleep and wakes me up. After two days of very little sleep, I take a sleeping pill (zanax or alprazolam) and sleep 8-10 hours. The lack of sleep is now having the worst effect so what are my options.

I also take omeprazole for acid reflux problems, but before the neck pain is was no problem. I’ve had degenerated discs in my neck and lower back for 15 years. I am an active man who walks approx 2 miles twice a week and goes to the gym twice a week for light weight exercise to upper body and legs just to keep my muscles toned.
