Mineral deficiency: Potassium, magnesium plus tightness in you legs/thighs and lower back. Meds can do it too! nothing dangerous, just irritation and will corrupt your sleep. Begin a self-care wellness program of vits, magnesium, sleep, self/pro massage, chiropractor, heat, stretching. I use acupuncture and trigger point shots! see other answers.
