Suggest Treatment For Severe Pain In Leg And Thigh

I frequently, not every night, have pain in right leg, particularly my thigh. It feels like an elephant is sitting on my leg! Lasts about half an hour. I turn over, pull leg up and eventually it goes away. Does not bother me when ambulating or sitting. I have serious insomnia and could do without this. Thank you. Barbara Longmuir, RN
