Sleep study: You should discuss this with your doctor to rule out any type of disease process and also to consider sleep apnea, chronic fatigue syndrome or other related issues. A diary your sleep patterns and what you did the day and night before are also critical.

Depends: Are you napping? Do you have a problem sitting in a car for long periods with the feeling that your legs want to move by themselves? Possibly you just have a lot on your mind and just have a hard time turning it off to relax. If it continues you should talk to your doctor.
