:I had a similiar problem when I went on vacation. I had some one watching my lizards but the person didn't spray my crested's tank down the whole week and my crested had pooped in her water dish and it was never refilled. She also turned the heat light on all week because she thought it was too cold. It was in the high 80's in the cage most of the week. When I got home my crested was acting funny then I saw what had happened in the cage. I took her out to check on her and she suddenly rolled over and stopped breathing. I screamed and cried for about a minute then as sudden as it happen she just perked up like nothing happened. I then hand feed her and clean the water dish and sprayed the tank down. I think the lack of water and the heat was too much for her. It was midnight so there was no local vets open. The next day she was fine so I watched her for the next couple of weeks to check to see if this was a one time thing and it was. I won't be taken a vacation anytime soon. You may check if she is dehydrated and or over heated but still you should probably still go to the vet.
