Are you talking about legs that have strange sensations? And those are relieved by moving them or walking about? And do these symptoms get worse if you sit still or lie down? And happen more at night?

Of it's after a long run it's just tired legs. If it's other times then google restless legs syndrome (seriously it's real)

Hang on, are you saying your legs keep running when you go to bed?

I suffer from RLS - Abstaining from alcohol really helps and i've found that it's much improved since i've knocked the booze on the head.

i get this after any hard training or race - i find compression 'recovery' tights help a bit... so does sticking my legs out of the covers so they really cool down.

Got something to say?
