In brief: Neurologic excess

There can be a sense of "need to move".
Many people have this disorder and have to move their body - especially move the legs. This is often just excitement of the nerves than can be controlled with muscle relaxants or with calming exercises. Rare myoclonic seizure disorders or spinal abnormalities can produce similar symptoms.
