Cannot say: most commonly, RESTLESS LEG SYNDROME can cause this. it is an imbalance between the input to move and input to suppress movement of the limbs (typically, lower limbs). Triggered by overuse of legs usually in a young person. Happens spontaneously in about 10% of older people. Stretching, resting, after work out. toning down work outs are treatments. Many other possibilities though.
