Unhappy Did my hamster have a stroke?

I just got back from vacation a few days ago. The night I came home, I let my syrian Panda out to run (with supervision as always) and she was normal, running and having fun. Today and yesterday, I noticed she seemed to be slowing down. She didn't want to run like usual, so I just let her sleep. I made sure she had fresh food and water as usual, but she's still the same. Today, she seems worse. I believe she ate, but she seems unlike herself. She is startling at my touch, which is very unusal, and she seems to be unable to move around far without stopping and laying down. I took her out to see if she would want to walk around outside the cage, and it seems like she cannot walk properly. I remembered my old cat who deteriorated very quickly after a stroke and had to be euthanized. I'm doing some research and it seems likely. I don't know to handle this other than try to make her comfortable and give her space since she seems so confused.

For reference, Panda should be nearing the age of 2.

Also should add that she's keeping her eyes closed and only squinting when opening them.

Your hamster probably had a stroke, and you should take her to the vet as soon as you can. I have never had a hamster live more than two and a half years, so she is probably getting old and facing medical problems. I hope all goes well.

It's concerning to hear about your hamster's symptoms. A vet visit sounds like the best course of action to ensure she gets the care she needs. They can provide guidance on how to best support her health.
