Unhappy Not running

So long story short, on Tuesday afternoon I had to take Annabelle to the vet. Since our appointment was in the middle of the day and she needed a foot bath in the morning and had to wash her sleeping bag multiple times when we got back (she gets annoyed and won't sleep anywhere else than the favourite bag ) she was up most of the day and basically slept all night,I wasn't really surprised. But since then I've put her back on a normal schedule, trying to hold her as much as she'll tolerate but she still won't come out and run. She still eats and drinks normally when it's dark but she won't use her wheel, which is weird because she's very active. I had to go back to the vet this morning (unrelated) and asked her and she just said that Annabelle might still be stressed. Everything else is normal and the vet said she's otherwise very healthy, just wondering if anyone else has any suggestions? This has been a very hedgie-stressful week

Is the wheel spinning freely? Are the toenails in need of a trim?

Yes and no, her nails were done less than a week ago. She was running normally right until after the vet visit =/

Yep, everything's normal and the vet seemed to think it's just stress. That was her first vet visit with me. She's only left the house once (other than that), to go to my mom's for a few days when I was on vacation after Christmas. The first night I had her home she was wheelin away like always.

Or maybe she's just boycotting this wheel until her new sparkly CSBW comes
