Thanks for writing to us.
The shaking of the leg can be related to muscle fatigue or anxiety. Since this has happened for the first time, there is nothing to worry. You can just ignore it. In case this happens again then you need to consult a physician for a physical examination.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
