Thank you for sharing your problem with me

Your symptoms looks like restless leg syndrome to me. It may not be due to poor circulation.

There are various medications available to control and treat the symptoms. A neurologist can prescribe those drugs to you - they are not available over the counter. So may I suggest you to see a neurologist; he could help you with it at the earliest

Let me know if you need clarification

Kind regards
