Ghost Shrimp sick or dying?

Tanknewbie

Hey guys! So I bought a ghost shrimp a couple months ago and added it to my cycled tank. My tank has three red-eyed tetras, two nerites, and that shrimp. The shrimp was doing great when yesterday I saw it lying on its side on the gravel. I thought it was dead so I was trying to net the shrimp out but it was just spasming every time the net touched it. Soo I decided to let him pass in peace and left it alone. The next morning I checked again and its STILL ALIVE but still lying down. Does anyone know whats going on…? Does it usually take this long for shrimps to die? The coloration of the shrimp is normal (clear).

Yeah. It’s alive again and slowly eating stuff. Two of the legs look weird and dislocated though. Could this be a disease? I’ve also notice white spots on the shrimp.
