My hedgehog is around a year and a half old and is healthy. She is eating and drinking normally but has been acting strangely. Normally she is not easily startled and is pretty chill, but recently she has been acting very frantic, irritable, and jumpy. She isn't sticking out her quills and balling up very much though, mostly just huffing and jumping at every noise and movement. She also has been scratching herself, but it doesn't appear to be in the same place each time. She also is shaking her head like a dog a lot over and over. Another thing that I noticed was when I had her in her snuggle pouch she was kind of rolling around and rubbing herself against it. I thought maybe she might have an ear infection and she's trying to itch it and that's why she's shaking her head but her ear looks normal from what I can see. Her skin looks somewhat dry but not very unusual to me. Does anyone have any idea of what could be wrong?

Here is a link to a video where you can see her behavior:
