Elbow pain with sleep aid

Patient : When I take sleep aid I wait for myself to become really tired before going to bed. But when I do I close my eyes and my elbows feel weird. They feel like they need to be moved immediately. I will sit up in bed with the overwhelming feeling that I have to cram my fingers into the soft spots of my elbows. This happens over and over. I close my eyes, sit up, and dig at my elbows. I hear people asking me questions while I do this. And I am just inbetween awake and asleep. Can someone tell me what this is?
