Default Drinking water

Hazel has been acting off for a few weeks. I did take her to the vet because her poop was different and ended up with a day where she didn't go potty at all.
I've switched to bottle water. Most nights I attempt to syringe her some water. The first night that I got her to take 2mL, she pooped great.
She's been sleeping more under her fleece liner. I have to wake her up and have some bonding time or she may not get up to run at all.
She's been taking syringe water pretty well. Tonight she decided to eat it instead lol but she had about2mL again.

I have always used a bowl for her water and she has never had a problem before. Someone told me that it may have been my tap water that made her stop drinking so I switched.

Does it take awhile for them to stop taking a syringe and go back to just the bowl?
Her cage is about 76-77. I have a room heater and che. She has 2 wheels. I have a light schedule for her.
