Call dr again: Two things come to mind- (1) You have an adverse drug reaction to Prilosec (stopping it for a few days would be justified) or (2) Your problem is not from acid reflux at all or it may just be a coincidence. Neither can account for the leg weakness since it started before you took Prilosec. Call you doctor again and get a referral if indicated.
