Yes, I would say it is unlikely to be related to breeding season, a month is a long time! Did he eat waxworms normally? Or is he refusing all food? What is his enclosure/set up like?
I would recommend bathing him twice daily in luke warm water in a shallow bath, with reptoboost solution added (an electrolyte). This will help to keep him hydrated.
Reptiles do not show symptoms of illness until they are quite sick, because their metabolism is very slow. This means when they are showing symptoms such as this they really need treatment ASAP.
You can also syringe feed him with some critical care formula which is an electrolyte formula to keep him hydrated and get some fluid passing through.
I would advise giving calcium supplementation incase the symptoms are due to hypocalcaemia/metabolic bone disease. I would give calcivet or zolcal D, 0.1ml per 100g – once daily orally.
Please let us know if you have further questions.
