    Are you sure the other limbs aren't rubbery (that would be a sign of MBD). Is this a baby or an adult? Can you post a picture? Sometimes when the gecko is limping and may have a broken leg, all you have to do is wait till it heals. If the leg is twisted, it may need to be "set" and I think you're going to have to visit a reptile vet. If you can't find a reptile vet, this may be something that a regular vet can handle since it's orthopedic.
