Question Leg jerking/twitching...

Does anyone know the reason when out of the blue, one of your legs seems to have a mind of it's own...?
This happens about once every 2-3 months, usually when sitting still somewhere, followed by doing the same thing, in bed, as I'm trying to get to sleep. Like as if its got a mind all its own, determined to do its own thing, by jerking around left to right...

Just read another post on this subject & one of the explanations was if you've just come off any drugs. Well, I just came off a prescription drug nearly 2 years ago, so that couldn't be it, could it ?

If anyone can explain why in the world this happening, I'd be of great appreciation !

Many thanks...
