In brief: Restless leg

Restless leg syndrome (RLS) can be associated with such symptoms, although the actual muscle weakness on exam (not just by symptoms) is unlikely.
See your doctor if the diagnosis hasn't been confirmed. If it has, iron supplementation (ferrous sulfate) usually is rapidly effective (a few days) in relieving symptoms. Sometimes, but not always, there is also iron deficiency anemia.
