2 yr old female, extremely restless, no appetite, passing small amount of runny urate almost every day. Has anyone seen or heard of this?

I've double checked her lamps, heat, etc. Her substrate is a sand mat so I know she's not impacted (been there done that).
Idk if she's getting ready to shed again or wants to bru mate but she does act like it.
I've still have yet to be able to get her to eat greens or fruit. I've offered her worms instead of trying to force greens but she's not even interested in that, which makes me think it's a nutrition thing.

Has she laid eggs before? Is she digging in the tank at all? Please go over the lighting UVB and her surface basking temps--- they need to be taken w/ a digital probe thermometer -- lighting and temps should be ruled out first as a cause for lack of appetite -

Like Karrie said, she may be carrying eggs. It would be good to set up a laybox, or have everything on hand, just in case. Youtube will show how to set up a beardie laybox.

No she hasn't. The last time she saw another dragon was in the store when she was a baby. I read to what to look for and I don't feel anything in her belly. She's not really digging either just scratching on the sides of the tank like she wants out.
Her UVB is fine and temp says 90 with humidity at 55%. I do have a hard time getting her cool side cool enough.

You often don't feel the infertile eggs and scratching in a restless way can be a symptom before an upcoming clutch is laid. That's not conclusive but it can be part of the signs.

Even though she's never been around or seen another dragon or Male? Well not since she was a baby.

Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
