Apparently, my body needs to be moving in some way, and I have to exert effort to make it stop. Is there anything else this kind of behavior correlates with? -Fr L- First of all, you're not the only person who does this.
I've done it since I was a kid, almost always without realising it, and my friends have made fun of me about it too I'm not a doctor, but I think the answer has something to do with the fact that when you're sitting you're resting your leg on the ball of your foot and putting pressure on a nerve or musle or something which triggers the reflexive leg shaking. I have had something similar off and on throughout my life.
I have also used the terminology of it taking effort to stop rather than keep doing it which many people can't understand. I've heard it called "sewing machine leg", although Googling that comes up with an issue rock climbers have with shaking legs.

I suspect this may be related to the fact that when I am standing, and not doing anything else, I tend to sway, sometimes quite widely. I don't even have to think about it--in fact, I have to think about it in order to make it stop. But me, when I'm sitting down, one or the other or both of my knees is sure to be bobbing rapidly up and down. But what I realized yesterday (because it was forcefully and humerously pointed out to me by some friends) is that most other people don't do this.
