my dad: muscle weakness/worms crawling on his legs

he is 82 yrs old, an athlete all his life. Just recently he had an ulcer and spent a few days resting in the hospital. This was his FIRST time in the hospital so far in his 82 yrs of his life... he was very anxious and didn't like being told to stay in bed. Now he feels as if there are worms crawling on him and he says he feels week. The doctors are just giving him clarithromycin and amoxicyillin for the ulcer/helicobacter pylori bacteria. Has anyone experienced this? Has anyone "felt worms crawling on them"? thank you in advance

Re: my dad: muscle weakness/worms crawling on his legs

we just realized it could be the side effects from his ulcer medicine - why couldn't the doctors realize this?!! the med is omeprazole - one side effecg is muscle weakness.....
