Here's to hoping it isn't too late, but that is most likely MBD or another nutritional deficiency. ASAP to the vet, but at 18 months, and I'm just trying to be realistic here, the chances are slim the gecko will survive. My brother in law took in a Garg with the same symptoms and similar age from poor care from the herp rescue, spent a ton of time hand feeding and caring for the adult and, while its last three months were probably the best in its life, he still didn't make it when we thought he was doing great.

Do you have a care sheet on crested gecko care? Calcium supplementing alone is not enough, trace minerals and a complete diet is what is needed. Crested Gecko Diet is one of the easiest things to feed cresteds and is found in every chain store I've ever been to and is usually what we suggest to everyone. Crickets and all are fine, I feed them gut loaded and dusted to our little ones and once in a while to the adults as stimulus, but it is far from complete nutrition.

My favorite easy to read care sheet is here, please get the gecko to a vet today and everyone will cross their fingers:
