Scleroderma is associated with sleep disorders such as restless leg syndrome and I've found a link for you to an earlier thread on Restless Legs and also information on Sleep disorders and Scleroderma which I hope you'll find interesting.
I have suffered a little with it in the past and agree; it is really annoying! I think you'll find some helpful suggestions on the earlier thread; I must admit I didn't actually do anything to alleviate it myself and it did pass off eventually.

Right now I take 30mg of pain medication 30 min before bed and lidocaine patches on the most sensitive areas if I wake up in the night and the pain has traveled.
It's a huge issue for me, almost more than the sclero and fibro.
