Check the bark. Mine had splits all down it and what looked like tiny eggs in them. Only some branches were affected at first but it spread so I sadly took it out. No idea what it was, possibly a fungus?
It could be overwatering or underwatering, as the signs are the same for both. I would take a few leaves to a local nursery. If you've been watering a lot, cut back and see how it does. You typically need only one inch of watering a week whether it's from the sky or a hose.
