Default Odd Behavior

Hello everyone! My hedgehog Renny has been acting really odd lately. I'm in the military and recently PCS'd to Fort Bliss TX ( I was in Fort Knox). So me and her went on this super long roadtrip to Texas. Once I got here, I set up her cage, got her food, water, and her wheel and everything else she needed. The next day, I noticed she hadn't used her wheel (she's a big fan of pooping in her wheel and there was no poop). I thought she was pouting or sleeping it off, but the next day, still no poop. She was still eating and drinking. And the next day...still no wheel, poop, or pee. So I tricked her kinda (she always poops when I give her a bath) so I gave her a bath and she pooped and peed. Her poop looked pretty normal, she didn't seem to have trouble doing it so I'm not quite sure why she won't just do it. At first I thought perhaps she was trying to hibernate but she is warm. We've been here a week now and she still will not poop, pee, or use her wheel and it's starting to really worry me. Her wheel is her favorite thing and she just can't seem to snap out of this. Any help is greatly appreciated!!

It sounds like she might be stressed because of the new environment? I would say go to the vet just in case, though! It might be more serious than just stress.
