That crossed my mind too. Gullar edema (swollen throat) is a sign of vitamin toxicity, also the liver could be hardening if that is the case. I recall reading a post a long time ago that said to mix cabbage (which usually is a no no) in with the greens. It is rich in iodine and helps rid the body of excess vitamin A by binding with it.
:Have you considered that it could be a vitamin A toxicity.
:Signs of this are swelling of the throat,bloating of the body, and lethargy. If she feels "squishy" in her tummy, could be bloating.
:Just a thought. It't best to go to the vet armed with as much info as possible. I would highly recommend visiting www.anapsid.org. The lady who wrote this site has dedicated her life to reptiles. She's amazing. She lists all kinds of diseases and symptoms on her site. I get a lot of my info from her.
