In brief: Tamoxifen
Tamoxifen can cause bone pain but what you describe is most likely restless leg syndrome or a peripheral neuropathy which is not common in tamoxifen users.

In brief: Not likely
I have prescribed tamoxifen to several hundred women and have never heard any of them complain of that particular symptom. Main common symptoms are hot flashes and other menopausal symptoms, occasional nausea or upset stomach.
