so for the not eating part, aquatic turtle can"t eat top top land, they need to swallow underwater. Place the food underwater and also hopefully he/she will begin eating again. As for the no going in water, what is the temps? Also, what your turtle"s species? carry out you have more thasn one tortoise in the tank?

Hi Noob! Welcome come the forum!

I"m going come strongly indicate that you take your turtle to a default reptile vet. Lose of usage of limbs can indicate organ concerns (and would define the lose of appetite). I"m no saying the organ worries is what is wrong....I am saying that it would be near impossible for us to diagnose what"s wrong v your turtle. This one ns would get to a vet as soon as possible. 

(Keep the in shallow water to stop him native drowning because his limbs don"t occupational properly)
