Default Acting strange

Hello. I’m new to this page, sorry this is a long I have a female hedgie called Enya, she is 1 1/2 years old, had her since she was about 6-7 weeks old. she’s a sassy girl, but very sweet, but right now she does not want to be touched, normally when she sniffs my hand she’s fine, but for the last 24 hours she’s been very skittish, she runs away from me, like proper bolts, shoving everything out of her way, I try to pick her up but she’s having none of it, shes also snuffling loudly, she’s done it twice before but she’s normally fine the next day, but I’m more worried now, she’s recently had 2 rounds of treatments for mites (the second treatment was just over a week ago) she’s got new quills coming through to replace the ones lost by the mites so I know that would make her grumpy (she was really grumpy when she went through quilling) she’s acting like she’s very scared of something but not sticking her quills up, just running away, she’s still eating fine, gave her a mealie and she took it and ran off with it which is not like her at all she always sticks around if she knows mealies are around! She’s is normally very sociable. Now She just wants to hide, normally when I wake her up she’s fine but at the moment she just bolts away and hides wherever she can and huffs loudly, If she is still acting weird tomorrow I’ll call the vets. The weirdest thing is she was completely fine the day before (Wednesday) nothing new, then the next night she suddenly it’s friday evening, been just over 24 hours and she’s still being skittish, I’m getting worried, anyone have any advice? I might be over worrying (I do that a lot) but I’m very protective of her and any change has me all worked up!

The best thing to do is to get her checked out by the vet.
