Default Vomiting hedgie! :(

I'm new to this forum! And wasn't sure where to post this, so here we go!

I have a lovely, 3 year old hedgie named Ophelia! She is a rescue! I got her when she was about 10 months old from a friend who had simply given up caring for her
As of maybe 3,4 weeks now, she hasn't been feeling her best! I have her on linens for bedding... Which also help me to monitor her bowels and such!

Over the past few weeks I have woken up to the sound of her dry heaving / throwing up a brown looking liquid! ... I'm not enitrelynsure what it is, just hoping its not bile! It seems to happen when she first wake up ... Andsomeimes 10, 15 minutes after eating/drinking

She proceeds to drink, eat, and run on her wheel like crazy after throwing up which I thought a bit strange, because you'd figure she would be feeling sick! But she acts like it never happens.

She was on cat food for the first year, so I was advised to keep her on the same one, because she didn't seem to take well to change!
We don't have a vet that knows about exotics, so I haven't been able to take her anywhere close!

I'm hoping someone can shed some light on whats wrong with ophelia!!

Have there been any changes at all? Offered her any new treats? How about her food? Is it a new bag? Or is it an old bag that's may have gone a bit stale or moldy? Are you able to get a look inside her mouth? Has she maybe gotten anything stuck on the roof of her mouth? Does the vomit look like her food?
