Restlessness in the legs is a condition typically referred to as "restless leg syndrome," or RLS, and is usually due to superficial venous insufficiency. Abnormalities in circulation result in a "contamination" of the muscles with end-metabolites, such as lactic acid. When the body is reclined or is in the horizontal position, such as during driving or at night, venous circulation returns to a more normal state, in which any contraction of our leg muscles can help restore efficient circulation. Unfortunately, people suffering from restless leg syndrome usually cannot find a comfortable place for their legs when lying in bed and, therefore, keep moving around when trying to fall asleep.
