Why are my legs always sore after waking up?

For a few months now, I have been waking up with extremely sore legs after a night's sleep. I exercise moderately, but I do not believe that this can be the cause of the soreness. I wake up feeling refreshed, but the soreness lingers all day. What could be the cause of this?

This soreness may or may not be related to a sleep movement disorder. To accurately evaluate, you should consult with a sleep disorder specialist.
