Answer
Hello, It could possibly be Metabolic Bone Disease due to the time without the proper heating/lighting. Unfortunately I cannot diagnose anything, seeking out your local herp vet and making an appointment as soon as you can is the best and only decision you can make. I hope it all goes well.

Expertise

I can answer every question towards the bearded dragon except for questions that deal with sickness and disease. I can answer questions on heating and UV rays, the questions pertaining to food, habitat, bedding, breeding, egg/hatchling care, nature, and attitude are my best. Last, I cannot help you with at home sickness meds, always find a vet within your area. I can answer questions regarding body language and movement. I will try to help you to the best of my ability.

Experience

I have owned bearded dragons for over seven years and have been a breeder for two years. Caring and raising bearded dragons has been a great experience in my life and will continue to play a big role throughout my life.
