Restless foot syndrome

Is there anything called restless foot syndrome (as opposed restless leg syndrome)?

I wake up many times a night with shaking/twitching feet or hands. It is accompanied with a level of anxiety that adds to restlessness and keeps me awake. Many times drinking a glass or two of water guarantees another two hours of good sleep. However, if I still can fall asleep, I take a couple of potassium pills (99 mg each), which helps a lot. The strange thing is that my blood potassium level is within the indicated range. However, the sodium level is slightly below the range. I am interested to know if anyone else has a similar symptom, and solutions if any they are using for this issue?
