I had a similiar thing happen with one of my female corkbarks. I thought it had something to do with calcium decicency but it ended up being a major infection. Luckily I have an excellent vet near me and after about a month of hand medicating and force feeding she recoved fully. From the vet told me all the calcium related problems are long term slow diseases that don't arise suddenly but the animals may be able to mask the symtoms for some time before they become noticable. She also said that once animals reach the point of crashing and not being able to move they require a series of high concentration calcium injections as the calcium can not be absorbed quickly enough orally. My dad was going to get me some liquid calcium for her since he is a Doctor but the vet cautioned me against it since she said it could be damaging if the problem was not calcium related. A simple blood test will tell you whats wrong with her. All of these problems took place right before my female was going to lay. Hope you female gets better.
