    I get this for a few weeks in the summer, usually when it's very warm at night. It stops me sleeping. I'll try a spoonful of marmalade next time, if I remember.

    I don’t get RLS but chronically have something similar to this in my lower legs and feet, more of a feeling of not getting enough blood flow and oxygen down there and the resulting throbbing aches and pains. I also feel the need to stretch muscles and joints down there because it helps with the pain.

    Surely sticky restless legs would not be an improvement?

    Exactly @Mij RLS is listed as a symptom of iron deficiency - low ferritin
