Talking Hurt paw?

Okay, P.J. is around 9 months old, and a few days ago we noticed her front left paw is limp, she is favoring her other legs, and sometimes when she walks on that leg, she walks on a curled up paw.

I have no idea what to do!

You will definitely want to take her into the vet to rule out serious ailments. Some things you can check real quick is to make sure she don't have any cuts on them, no toe nails curling under and digging in. It's hard to say though without seeing it because there is a number of things that could have happened. It would be best to take the hedgie to the vet if you can't pinpoint the cause as something simply remedied.

I'll get a quick video of her walking later, she's got no cuts, no in-grown nails.

I'm thinking she's done something to it while running on her flying saucer wheel, and then makes it worse each time she gets on it.
If that's the case, should I remove her wheel for the day till I get her a new one?

Definitely remove her wheel/saucer while she is injured. She is probably exacerbating the situation by running every night.
I would make a vet appointment ASAP though, make sure it is nothing serious.
