Thanks for posting your query.

Stress make restless leg syndrome worse.

So treatment is aimed at reducing stress and helping the muscles relax. The following techniques may help:

Gentle stretching exercise
Warm wath

If your sleep is severely disrupted, your doctor may prescribe medications such as Sinemet (an anti-Parkinson's medication), gabapentin and pregabalin, or tranquilizers such as clonazepam.So I Advice you to consult your doctor about this.

Wishing you good health.
