Exclamation Hibernation or...?

Well I went into the room my hedgehog is in for the first time today and went to pick up my hedgehog Brilla. Once I lifted up her hut she automatically went into a very tight ball and in the process of picking her up she huffed and puffed. I felt her belly and it seemed as if she had a wet cold belly (i'm thinking cold sweats or pee?). I have her on a hot water bottle in a towel and responds to me touching/talking to her by huffing and getting into a tighter ball. Is this hibernation or is she sick?? She seems to be breathing normally when i'm not touching her but is almost making a very quiet squeeking sound when breathing.

What's the temperature in her cage? Do you have the necessary heating set up?

And you said you went to pick her up for the first time - how long have you had her?
