Question acting strange, not moving

My hedgehog is not moving much and cannot control legs, just her head. She usually curls up in a ball but has only laid rolled out on her side for the whole afternoon. She has also vomited a couple times. I have looked at some other websites and since its getting colder where i live i'm thinking that it was a hibernation attempt. So i have her wrapped up in a small towel and a heating pad. I'm getting pretty concerned and don't know what is happening to her.

That does not sound like a hibernation attempt. When attempting hibernation they are in a curled up quilly ball.

She needs to see a vet ASAP!
