Default Escudo not using back legs

When the lights came on I noticed one of my escudo in a funny position, so i opened the door thinking he would hop away and he didnt. I moved the leaf he was on and he came with it.
He is holding himself upright with his front legs, and the back legs are folded up as normal. When he tries to get away it's like his back legs don't work at all and he sort of drug himself a bit across the leaf. I misted him and he moved a little more but did not move his back legs.

Does anyone have any idea of what may be happening? I keep my frog room A/C set at 72 day 68 night so being too hot shouldn't be an issue.

I hope so much I don't lose this frog, I just got them breeding!

Any suggestions or guesses or anything would be great. Thanks

Are you dusting their food with a vitamin and vacuum supplement? If so which brand?

I use repashy calcium plus and alternate with herpaivit and rep-cal with D3. For the past month though I have only used the repashy calcium plus.

I just went back in and it was upside down, basically hanging off a leaf.

I flipped it over and got ready to pour calcium gluconate on it and it hopped away. WTF?!

I poured the calcium gluconate on it anyway and it is hopping around without any noticeable issue right now.

So odd.
