It sounds like restless leg syndrome - you probably need more magnesium in your diet. You eat much in the way of green leafy vegetables? They are high in the magnesium.

Re: Anyone ever get this?

Perhaps you have had the restless legs before and this is the first that you have been aware of it. Or, if you were so lacking in magnesium, it may be that you were beyond the restless legs, and now that you are taking magnesium as it is building up but is less than optimal you have the restless legs. See what happens over the next few weeks and if the symptoms disappear. It may just be the body reacting to finally getting something it needs.

It could be wrestless legg syndrome. Try upping your potassium levels, the magnesium doesn't work for me so my doctor prescribed potassium when I have serious problems intermittently, when it subsides I eat lots of banana's and foods rich in potassium.
