Hi

Thanks for writing in.
Have you been diagnosed with the syndrome by your doctor? There can be other conditions resembling the restless leg syndrome, which may cause one to keep on moving or bouncing on bed in order to get to sleep. Besides it is a possibility that insomnia due to some underlying medical, neurologic, psychiatric or drug-related causes may be causing these symptoms.  

Restless legs syndrome is characterized by unpleasant sensations of burning, creeping or like insects crawling inside the legs. There is an uncontrollable urge to move when at rest in an effort to relieve these feelings. The symptoms are worse during rest and are aggravated at night.

The disorder is diagnosed clinically by evaluating the patient's history and symptoms. Benzodiazepines (such as clonazepam and diazepam) may be prescribed for treating the symptoms.

You should consult a doctor for a proper diagnosis and treatment.

Take care
