fitting mouse?

I think my mouse misty is having a fit but she is trying to walk so im not too sure. shes shaking very badly and her back is arched in a funny way. she keeps having sudden outbursts of realy bad shaking then stops shaking as bad for abit and she wont open her eyes. shes trying to bury herself and keeps curling up aswell. she has just seemed fine and started looking around but is now curled up again. does anyone have any advice on what could be wrong wirh her or what i can do to help her?

I can only offer a handful of ideas, but no real valuable input beyond that.

Maybe a stroke? Is she cold? Dehydrated?

I know I've read mice have a terrible time maintaining their body heat because they're so small. You may want to place a heating pad set on low, under part of her cage, and see if perhaps that remedies the situation.

thanks for the advice im going to give her bread dipped in water just in case she is. I think it may have been a stroke because ive noticed she hasnt been acting right the past few days but thought nothing of it as it was only little things. i dont have a heating pad but am coming up with alternative ideas for that. thank you very much for your help

I had a hamster before which had a stroke - he lost all mobility in his hindquarters.

Well wishes for her!
