Default Old Hedgie - bumping into things

Hello - I have had my Hedgie for just over 4 years now. She had a stroke (diagnosed from the vets) about 6-8 months ago and now her head is constantly to one side.

Recently when I have been getting her out for a run around in the evening she becomes quite disorientated and often keeps bumping into thinks like the chair legs and the walls.

She is still eating and drinking, and is still a huffy little madam. Should I be worried??

Thank you xx

Could she have become blind? Do her eyes look normal? You can try wiggling your fingers in front of her face and see if she reacts. Make certain your fingers don't rub together or she will react to the sound.
