This does indeed sound like Restless Leg Syndrome. Some people do seem to find relief from Magnesium tabs. I also heard there was a new major drug due to appear on the market for Restless Leg Syndrome, but I haven't heard any more about it recently. I think is was, in th US, called Requip (ropinirole). A good neurologist should be able to advise on this.

Maybe you should consult a doctor for proper diagnoses.
