It'would be of interest to know your age David, and your general physical 
fitness level....
This restlesness in the lower extremities is known to me personally from 
my childhood. As you noted, the continuous motion taking place 
involintarily (In my case: while laying face down in bed, my feet in a 
pushup like position, and my heels sweeping in opposition to each other 
for hours on end for a number of years.

My doctors suggested that my musculer development was slow in my pre-teen 
days, and told me to cycle, walk hilly paths and run to improve the 
muscularity in my legs. After a year of intentional physical activity, 
mostly cycling and hiking in the Canadian Sheild, I found the problem was 
pretty much eliminated.

P.S. If you do find others suggesting the same coarse of action and you 
decide to try it, remember to start slowly and do a little more each 
opertunity you take. Don't do too much when you begin and make it as much 
fun and enjoyable as you can, It can take a while. 

Hoping this will be helpfull....R.A.H./L.J.M.
