You cant break their wheel running behaviours, but some hedgehogs are a lot more active, and more consistent in what they do.

Have you suddenly changed the food ?? Suddenly changing food can make them stop eating.
What insects are you feeding her daily ?? If your feeding her a variety of insects (not just mealworms) every evening the at least she is easting something.
If she's not eating or drinking did you mention this to the vet ?? Generally when they suddenly aren't eating and aren't drinking its a sign that they are ill.

This obsessive wheeling has it only just started or has she always done it ?? If its only a recent thing it could possibly be dealing with pain/illness. I'm not a vet though so I cant say.

I think go to you vet, explain to them whats going on and get them to try find a reason.
