I'm so glad its not crypto!!!!! But my only other suggestion is to take another look at your geckos set-up. Something she needs and is not getting. Look at odd things like how noisy is the area the tank is in? Does she get enough hours of darkness (day/night cycle)? Is the air too dry/humid/dusty/moldy? Does anything bother her when you're not home (like a cat stalking her)? Just some suggestions... Hope she's doing better!
