Your temps are too low for a veiled chameleon. During the day your basking area should be around 95F+ and the low temp within your gradient should be around 80F. A 10F drop at night is preferable. Your cham will not be able to properly digest its food without the correct temps. Do you have any pictures? You might want to start looking for a veterinarian who has experience with chameleons.
