Restless legs: You could have restless legs syndrome. A neurologist or sleep specialist may be able to help you with evaluation and effective treatment. You list anxiety and confusion as symptoms also, but no medications -- some medications can worsen restless legs. Hoping you'll consider seeing a neurologist/sleep doctor & informing him/her about all your health conditions and medications too. Be well, .
