Take a look at this site www.uvguide.co.uk
- it gives super information on UV lighting. A 5.0 really isnt strong enough for a beardie and could well be causing a problem for your little guy. Pet stores wont disagree - they are getting a sale!! Repti-glos are also not great bulbs and can cause eye issues (especially the coil/compact versions - the website I just mentioned has studies based on these bulbs).

In animals, ear infections can cause balance issues and what looks like neurological issues. I had a rabbit that walked in circles for a week due to an ear infection!
