Unhappy HELP - Hedgehog acting very strange

We have a female hedgehog who is about 16 months old. She is normally very friendly and used to being held. My son takes her out every evening. Last night he took her out and she was very jumpy, agitated, hissing, constantly moving, like she couldn't get comfortable. Appetite is good. Stools and urine look normal. Anybody have any thoughts, ideas, suggestions? Nothing has changed as far as her cage, where the cage is located, no other pets disturbing her, it's not loud at my house, no change in diet. Her ears are dry around the edges. She doesn't have mites, two vets confirmed that. That is the only thing different with her.

Take a good look at her and see if there are any quills bent over and poking her. It does happen. Also, check for any sores or bite marks in case she got bit by a spider. Check her all over for anything that could be bothering her.
