motoric unrest
Explanation:
E.g.
Psychosomatic Symptoms
The typical reactions to separation and traumatic experiences of unaccompanied children are depression, changes of mood, reservation, increased level of aggression and psychosomatic symptoms. Psychosomatic symptoms of unaccompanied refugee-children are head-aches, stomach-aches, nightmares, sleeplessness, enuresis (bed-wetting), motoric unrest, increased irritability, difficulties with concentration, learning difficulties, friendship difficulties and fear of deep emotional contact.

OR:
By the time the doctor arrived, the peak of the crisis had already passed. As far as I can remember, the following were the most outstanding symptoms: vertigo, visual disturbances, the faces of those around me appeared as grotesque, colored masks; marked motoric unrest, alternating with paralysis; an intermittent feeling in the head, limbs, and the entire body, as if they were filled with lead; dry, constricted sensation in the throat; feeling of choking; clear recognition of my condition, in which state I sometimes observed, in the manner of an independent, neutral observer, that I shouted half insanely or babbled incoherent words. Occasionally I felt as if I were out of my body.

(psycho)motor agitation


Explanation:
I know I'm about 12 years late on this, but I came across this term in my own translation. I did some research on the suggested terms and they didn't seem to pan out - only around 600 hits on Google with many of those being translations from German. After doing some additional research, I found "motor agitation", which seems to have 25,000+ hits and is named again and again as a symptom of depressive disorder (subject of my translation) and whose definition describes my understanding of "motorische Unruhe" to a T.

Example sentence(s):
  • motor agitation (feeling like you have to constantly be moving)
