Thanks for the question. I would like to say that there are few important possibilities which should be investigated such as peripheral neuropathy, disc disorder in the lumbar-sacral region such as herniation with nerve compression, vitamin B12, iron deficiency & other causes like that which can also give restless leg syndrome. I will highly advise to see your physician first for evaluation and tests which should include x-ray back, iron levels, serum vitamin B12 levels, nerve studies, blood urea levels, full blood count. You may need to see specialist later on most likely Neurologist. Warm baths, massage, stretching exercises might help until you see physician. Let me know if you have any further question. Best wishes.
