Muscle Twitching at night

Patient: For the past couple of nights whenever I lay down I feel a twitch on my right thigh muscle right above the knee. it’s irritating and I can get a bit paranoid. It goes away for a while when I move it. Also it hurts when I poke that spot. I would think it’s a muscle strain but it only happens when I go to bed. Could it be Restless Leg Syndrome?

 

 

Symptoms: Thigh Muscle twitching at night, and pain upon touch.
