Default Old hedgehog?

It has been about 4 years since I have been back to forum. Just because my hedgie has been doing awsome with 0 problem. However, I just noticed something today. I opened his tub to change water and put food in the bowl. He always comes out to eat, which he did. Then he was standing there and he was falling to the side, almost like he couldn't balance himself. It was just once, and he came back to normal, followed around mealworm and ate his food. Should I be worried? he has been running around yesterday, but since he is old, I feel like there might be a problem or is he just old?

It could have been some age reaped stiffness from getting up. Just like people start slowing down, stiffening up and having balance issues as they age the same can happen with hedgehogs. As long as everything else is normal and it doesn't happen all the time I wouldn't worry.
