Unhappy Is my hedgehog getting bored, lonely or could something be wrong?

HI! So I've been wondering my 2 year old hedgie girl seems to be getting lonely or maybe bored? She's not running in her wheel as often as she was, she used to every night and it's not because of her nails I usually trim them around 1 week to make sure they don't curl or get to long to be uncomfortable. When I take her out and put her in her play pin she doesn't seem to run around and adventure like she used too she just kinda sits there with like a blank stare or she'll try to hide and sleep. She still eats and drinks normally but there isn't a lot of poop in her cage or even on her wheel (since she's really not even running in it) her cage is kept around 80 degrees. Does anyone have any ideas of what could be going on? Or what I can do to keep my hedgie from being bored? I've been thinking of possibly getting another female companion for her but I heard that's not a good idea also.... please help!!

When they have sudden personality changes it usually means they are ill. Take her to a vet.
