In brief: Not likely

Per the literature, there is currently no obvious link between low testosterone levels and restless legs syndrome (rls).
Rls is linked to low peripheral ferritin and Dopamine levels. If you are experiencing symptoms of rls, it is recommended you consult a sleep medicine specialist to evaluate and treat it. Hope that answers your question!
