In brief: Restless legs
There is an urge to move the legs in the evenings due to uncomfortable feeling.
You feel better when you do. In kids it might have been called growing pains. Medical assessment is needed to look for possible causes such as iron deficiency. Treatment includes massage, baths, avoiding certain medications and sometimes treatment using medications . There is a restless legs foundation rls.Org.

In brief: Don't forget veins
Venous insufficiency and varicose veins is a very commonly overlooked cause of restless legs syndrome (rls).
If you have trouble with leg cramps and have veins you can see in your legs, i would recommend seeing a phlebologist (vein specialist). If you have RLS as a symptom of vein trouble, treating your veins generally make s huge difference.
