Hey Jay, interesting question. I found this paper published by Lee et. al., titled "Poststroke restless legs syndrome and lesion location: anatomical considerations." In the paper they discuss how subcortical areas such as the pyramidal tract and basal ganglia-brainstem axis are involved in both motor functions as well as the sleep-wake cycle, and thus RLS symptoms can arise after these areas suffer ischemic stroke!
