Default whs? tummy bug maybe?

my little hedgehog (cracker, 4 yrs) had a a few runny poos earlier in the week. i put it down to a bit of a funny tummy as she was otherwise fine.

since then she has seemed a little lethargic and odd on her back legs almost wobbly. shes not eaten a lot of her usual food but will still eat mealworms and she's drinking normal. shes still walking around a bit but not much. shes a little off her usual routine, she usually comes out for food around 10 but was an hour late this evening. she didnt eat just sniffed. she has lost a little weight but i had put her on a diet so wasn't too concerned but now she has continued to lose weight despite me upping her food.

she tried hibernating when she was around 1 year old and since i've heated up a heatpad 3 times a day with fluffy towels and bedding. she feels warm to the touch but i have wrapped her up a lot more to make sure she stays warm.

i can't get her in to the vets until saturday, does anyone know what to do in the meantime?

ive taken her out to give her a cuddle and to try to warm her up a little. she was calm and let me stroke her and then she started to climb out and walk around which is good.
i let her climb out and then put her back in the towel i had her wrapped in a few times. when i put her back in her cage i put her down lightly on her feet but she fell to the side and laid there for a while. she walked around a bit to get comfy in her bed and now shes lying down.
