I would strongly suggest you get a thorough medical evaluation.
You have major concerns and need good answers. Do not expect anonymous "experts" on web sites to give you a good answer.

In brief: Be Sure of Diagnosis
The most important thing about restless leg syndrome is to be sure that you actually have it.
It is an irresistible need to move ones legs in order to alleviate an uncomfortable feeling of itching and/or aching of the legs that almost always occurs at night when you are quietly resting your legs. It is usually alleviated by moving the legs. Make sure you fit this symptom complex.
