You might want to check with a neurologist. I get restless leg syndrome and sometimes it bothers my arms too. Sometimes medications can cause this as well.

This is so strange, I had this with all three of my pregnancies, Thank you I thought it was me being silly! I remember it was in my legs and feet, terrible, couldn't keep them still. It was an agitating feeling.

Soniaibarra. Nobody listened to to the 'anxiety' part of your question. For years I have described "anxiety in my legs and also my arms if it gets worse." Doctors all ignore me if I bring it up. There just isn't a way to describe it as bad as it is.
I know it is in my head because it mostly coincides with stressful times(I have mood/stress disorders also), and I can't find the spot to massage with my hands. I can tell about where it is, but I can't find the exact spot.
I have doctors (good ones), but I need to bring this up to them again. They all (even doctors from other places without my records) have the same response. They do nothing, and don't seem worried. It is hell inside though.
<If anyone has experience with this, please contact me> I wish I noticed this page in 2009.
