In brief: RLS
Rls, or restless legs syndrome is a rather common condition -- start with a visit to the doctor for exam and labwork (ferritin, etc.
) there are a host of medications that may help, and rumor has it, that placing a bar of soap between the sheets in your bed can also help your symptoms (odd, but true!).

In brief: Other thoughts
Besides the things that dr. Cohen mentioned (i have heard about soap working too), RLS is also associated with varicose veins and venous insufficiency.
This is an often overlooked cause of RLS symptoms. If you have RLS and you have varicose veins, you would do well to see a phelbologist (vein specialist).

In brief: RLS
The majority of RLS cases are due to nerve damage associated with diabetes or discopathy.
Patient near bedtime feels urge to move and when move legs feels some comfort, then discomfort again returns. We check ferritin and if it is less than 50 also add iron supplements. There are different meds. Soap bar works? For nocturnal leg cramps? Which is a different entity.
