This sounds like Restless Leg Syndrome. You can be tested but I would venture your doctor would let you try Flexeril or Requip. I did not like the Requip as it did not work for me. ALso Requip has some serious side effects. I take the generic of Flexeril called cyclobenzaprine. I take 10 mg a night. RLS can be miserable. ALso...make sure you are taking some calcium. I found that it helps my legs and I take some at night. Good luck and I hope you get some help with it.
