What causes restless legs during the day?

I am taking 1 mg of ropinerole at night for restless legs but I am starting to have restless legs in the afternoon after lunch. My job requires me to sit at a computer for long periods of time. I do get up every hour and move around but the restless legs are starting to hinder my ability to sit still. What can be the cause of this in the daytime?

My son was prescribed Paliperidone ER as follows. One 3 Mg tablet at night for three days in a row then two 3 Mg tablets for four nights in a row at which time he would see his Doctor. He inadvertently took two tables the third night instead of two and experienced restless legs during the night. Is this a normal side effect of Paliperi9done ER? George Chandler

Last night when I went to bed I was really restless and agitated and my legs felt weird which I suspect could have been Restless Leg Syndrome. Then twice during the night I awoke with a strong smell of burnt toast. I have been experiencing a strange sensation on the left side of my face from the cheekbone up into the scalp for the last four or five days and have also had cloudy vision for a few days in both eyes. I have never experienced any of these symptoms before.
