Poor thing....what is your set up like ? It sounds like calcium deficiency....this can happen even if you give calcium powder if they don't have the proper light / heat, to help absorb it. Could you list the type of lighting you have, and how close he can get to it ? What are the temps.? Should be 105 hot side, 80 cool side.The vet should be one that deals with reptiles, otherwise you may get no real help. At least they can check the calcium levels, and of course other things. If you are in an area that is warm enough, getting him in the natural sunlight can help, also you can get some liquid calcium from a drugstore or just wait to see if your vet gives you some. Putting him in about 2" of water and dribbling some on his nose may get him to drink, but don;t leave him unattended.
