The official term is "Restless Leg Syndrome", isn't it? Nah, whatever...
I've seen many people in my environment trashing around with their legs, myself included. I thought it was just a minor symptom of ADHD, ok it isn't, intresting.
However, one is meant to list their "pattern of mind" or "physical difficulties" in their irregularities section.
I assume many people have this disorder, but few are hindered by it, so this is the reason why RLS has just one adherent, yet.

I personally "jitter" all the time. One or both of my legs is near-constantly moving. However, I don't have chronic pain or discomfort that forces me to do this, and therefore don't suffer from RLS.

Nervous Leg Syndrome can be a Genetic trait that i ASSUME is passed through the Y chromosome. (ive never met a girl who has it (genetically), and in my dad's family its really common) NLS causes your leg to feel like its being punctured with thousand of tiny needles or by a ton of small fire ants (i hate those things so...) are crawling over your leg and biting it.... repeatedly. Most people who move their legs dont have NLS and do it from habit... NLS is actually not too common considering (supposedly) that only male's can pass it on.

It can also be caused by an iron diffecency and is a sighn that you may recieve disorders such as... varicose vein or venous reflux, folate deficiency, magnesium deficiency, fibromyalgia, sleep apnea, uremia, diabetes, thyroid disease, peripheral neuropathy, Parkinson's disease and certain auto-immune disorders such as Sjögren's syndrome, celiac disease, and rheumatoid arthritis. NLS can also worsen in pregnancy

The most common way of treating it is through Propranolol, moving doesnt really help much, but it really makes you want too...

It's also known as Restless Leg Syndrome...
