Lets start with the huffing...it could just be a quick exhale of breathe, they make when sniffing things, it can be louder and rapid. Are their eyes bright, no excessive porphryin (red discharge around eyes and nose), their fur is soft, and sleek, their breathing looks normal, they are active, eating, pooping and peeing normally?
If yes to the above I wouldn't worry unless you see a sign of illness. (lethargy, loss of appetite, all breathing noises that are obvious, etc).
Now the convulsions.
Is it a shiver when you hold her? This is nerves and will pass eventually.
If its a rythmic jerk forward over and over for up to a minute, then she has the hiccups.
Btw ALL domestic rats are fancy rats. Dumbo is just ear placement, rex is just a coat-type, see what I mean?
To the world you are only one person, to your rat you are the World
