Unhappy Help...hibernation....not sure

I went to feed my precious little darling and I found her curled up under her blanket (not uncommon). I picked her up and she curled up tighter. She usually UN curls when she knows it is me. I wrapped her up a turned the heater on. She is slowly...extremely slowly UN curling but she's shaking and has some bubbles on top of her nose which weren't there before..... PLEASE HELP I'm not too sure what to do right now......

First thing to do is keep calm. You need to warm her up but do it slowly and do not do it by putting her in a warm bath. Cuddle her up in a blanket and keep her close to you. It will take some time. 45 min to an hour. If it takes longer than that you might need to get her to an emergency vet. Either way it sounds like she might have a URI, so a vet visit will be necessary very soon. Once you get her warmed up, bump up the temperature on her heat setup a bit. See if she'll eat at all once she's a bit more normal. And keep us posted.

I am warming her up slowly, she started to UN curl and so I placed her back into her cage with the heat lamp on. She is now walking around and eating her food I put out for her, yet she still seems a little shaky standing there and walking. So far everything seems to be good so far.

Thank you so much for your quick reply and advice!!!!
