Hi there!

Yes, tingling/ pulling sensation could be RLS. Also Arnold-Chiari may be associated with RLS as well. However with the symptoms other possibilities such as neuro-muscular/ vascular issues micronutrient deficiencies, dehydration, infection/ inflammation, electrolyte imbalance, metabolic/ endocrine/ hormonal issues may need to be ruled out. I would suggest considering an evaluation by a primary care physician initially and depending on the cause suspected/ diagnosed, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
