RLS? Periodic limb movement?

I've recently been DX with PLMD discovered during a sleep study test. I've also had episodes of what I believe is RLS. I can only describe it as a very uncomfortable feeling in one or both legs that only subsides when I move them, usually in the evening. There's no pain involved at all. I'm using a CPAP machine and I'm taking Ropiniole, but my wife says I'm still moving my legs during sleep and I really don't feel that rested. Has anyone ever taken Nortriptyline or Cymbalta and been DX with RLS or PLMD? Did you try stopping the meds to see if the Meds were the problem?
