Hi and welcome to RFUK!

I'm sorry to hear about your poor lizard. I can't help you - sorry - as I have never kept these. I would suggest posting in the lizard section - many experienced keepers there. They will want to know some more detail of your husbandry - temps in viv, UV, humidity, supplementation etc. But it does sound serious so I think a trip to a herp vet is probably going to be needed.

sounds like md my little girl suffers from it my vet says most female yemens she see are calcium deficient i upped the uv to 12% and had to give her extra calcium drops
but i would recommend that you get her to a vet as without tests it is hard to know for sure

take her to the vets mate, dont want to worry you but ours did this, then seemed to recover, then a couple of days later she died, we rescued ours from a house where she had been left after the owners had moved out and just left her,, and a friend tooke her out and gave her to us, so she had many problems anyway, but get yours to a vet as soon as you can.
the more i learn about people, the more i love my reps.

RIP little pedro.
