Jenna, it’s difficult to say what the problem is without being able to examine you. It might be due to a problem with the blood supply to the legs, the nerves of the legs or even an electrolyte imbalance. You can try taking some Berocca Calmag®, but if it doesn’t work you will have to see your doctor. Good luck.
