leg and arm pain

i have SEVERE arm (arm pain is from the elbow to the hand-- topside) and leg pain (leg pain is in lower leg only--knee to ankle--shin).  it occurs about 1 1/2 hours after i go to bed.  it is only at night.  i have spoken with many drs and they all say it is restless leg syndrome.  if i stand up the arm and leg pain is completely gone.  if i hang my arms or legs over the bed and let them dangle the pain is gone.  
the pain i experience is INTOLLERABLE.  i am on a strong painkiller (narcotic) and know i can't be on that forever. i am kind of stuck. can you direct me somewhere????   do you know of anything that these symptoms fit?
