In brief: Some symptoms

Immobilization results in irritability of the legs, and you can't stay still, you need to move and walk about to relieve the sensation.
You are fatigued or tired and go to bed but feel restless and cannot stay still, and again get up and about. You are seated in a movie theatre, but can't get comfortable, and make excuse to get popcorn so you can move. Does any of this fit, and if so maybe rls.
