My daughter who is 6 has done this since I can remember and it goes in spurts. She will wake up for about 3 nights in a row and then it might be a month or two and she does it again.  I just give her a regular dose of Motrin and it seems to really really help her.  We too rub her legs and usually within about 20 min. of the motrin, she is back asleep and doesn't complain again. Good luck.
