Hello. You give no detail at all except that your tortoise is about 8 years old. We are left to guess what lights, what heat, what temperature & even what species or how long you've had it.
You need to find a specialist vet, your nearest vet may be able to help or refer you to someone. It may be ill, or you may need husbandry advice. You need to act quickly since it is likely to be suffering. Good luck & please let us know what happens.

How is your tortoise getting on ? What did the vet think ?
