Swollen front left leg on 5 month old beardie

Hello 👋🏼! I just got home from and I notice Kobe’s front left leg is swollen! He won’t bare weight on it but is not showing signs of pain ie black bearding hissing or bitting. He is letting g the arm hang but does walk on it. He has been waving it since I got home as well. Any advice on what it could be? I can’t afford the emergency vet and our exotic can’t fit us in until next week!

Hello,

Can you show some up close pictures of that for us?
Could he have fallen & hurt himself somehow?
If you can review your tank setup with us, so we can double check your UVB Lighting
& supplementation that would be helpful too.
How often do you give calcium for him? Is he eating normally too?
