Unhappy Behavior after clipping incident

I accadently clipped my hedgehog's nail too short and she bled alot.
It's all healed up now but she stays in a ball and pops.
Is this normal for some hedgehogs to be afraid because of being hurt like this?
Also when I took her out to play today I noticed she hasn't eaten as much as usual, because she hasn't been leaving her house.
Could this also be because the clipping?

Default Re: Behavior after clipping incident

How long has it been since that happened? She could be a little upset but keep handling her the same as always and she should come around. Treats always help!
