See your doctor: You're asking for a diagnosis, which we don't give here. Even if we did, your post is just the beginning of the diagnostic process, not the end. You may have restless-leg syndrome, or a polyneuropathy, or both, or something else entirely. A doctor needs to take a thorough history & then examine your actual physical body with his actual physical hands.
