Restless ARMS!! - tell me I'm not the only one!

I get restless legs at bedtime once in a while for no particular reason I can fathom, but a couple of nights lately it's been my arms!!! Why????? Went for a shortish jog yesterday evening - might that be linked?
Just wondering if anyone else ever has this?

I had it in my last pregnancy. Bananas and magnesium oil (you can get it in a spray) and iron tablets. My midwife said it indicates a lack of either potassium, magnesium or iron.

Ah, thanks - I usually take magnesium but forgot yesterday! Though unusually I did have a banana for breakfast. Glad there's at least two of us smile

I forgot to say that once I started all three the symptoms were so much better after about four days. It was waking me up about ten times a night and really hard to get to sleep initially. Massively noticeable difference
