Hiding in cave most of the time

Hello everybody, my beardie has been hiding in her rock most of the day for the past 4 days. My concern is maybe she has impaction, but she poops every other day so idk if it's that. On the topic of impaction when I feel her chest area right above her stomach where her front arms are I feel a soft little lump there. Idk if that's to be concern about. In cave about 75 % of the time and I do dust my feeders.
She is about 5 and a half months old and about 12 inches in length maybe?
When she does come out she eats like a pig tho
Anyway her set up is....
Uvb tube 10.0 ho
Basking light 75 watt zoo med brand basking temps of 103-105
And pic....

She would not be impacted if shes pooping -- how long is she basking for? Did we help you set the UVB up?

Ya a long time ago about 4 months ago. Today she basked right as soon as she ate for a couple hours? Idk exactly how long because by the time I went to work it was a hour and she was still basking.

Ok then I wouldn't worry about her- she is just chillin- when she quits eating basking being lethargic and no pooping losing weight then there's a problem
