Thanks for your question.
Does propranolol help decrease the movements in the leg and body?
Though anxiety may be causative for this symptom, still we need to rule out certain medical conditions before concluding this. This may be due to restless legs syndrome (RLS) where there is an urge to move the legs. Or it may be due to periodic limb movement disorder (PLMD) where the movements and twitching occur during sleep. Also I would suggest having a complete blood count done to rule out anemia and also have thyroid function tests done to rule out a thyroid disorder since these may also cause these symptoms. You need to take adequate amount of water and electrolytes to avoid dehydration which may be contributory.
So yes this may be a health issue and I would recommend consulting your doctor about this.
