What is going on with my beardie??

Yesterday, my beardie pooped in her enclosure, and she immediately started going crazy, just restless, climbing up and down stuff. I cleaned up the poop shortly after that and she seemed to calm down. Today, she pooped a tiny bit, I cleaned it up immediately, and she still just has been going wild. She’ll chill out for a bit and bask, but then she’ll start climbing all over like she’s restless. I gave her a bath a few hours ago. She just now, climbed to the highest point in her tank, pooped a tiny bit of just white juice (???) and is now looking outside the tank and acting like she wants out. Is something wrong? Is it just the poop? Does she just want out? Is something else bothering her in her tank? I had sprinkled some of that bee pollen on her salad. I don’t know I’m just trying to go through what it might be.

Normal behavior- for some reason they get the zoomies after going poop-- white juice is urate

Unruley, excitable, won't sit still.
In general being a holy terror. Also loss of appetite. That is Ruby everytime she's gravid. She doesn't start digging until she is actually ready to lay though. Once she starts digging I usually get eggs in hours not days. Sweet Pea was similar as well, but she wasn't as energetic as Ruby.

That makes sense— yes my girl the past 3 days now has just been so restless,running around and climbing and today started glass surfing on top of that. I’m worried about eggbinding as my girl is a rescue with MBD. What can I do to help her? I have a dig box but she just glass surfs in there too. I do need to get better substrate for it though,,,

Egg binding is one of those scarey things that gets passed around like tail rot or yellow fungus. Yes it can happen, but i think it's pretty rare. Both of my girls that have laid are rescues and came to me in horrible condition. Ruby was paralyzed in her hind legs, she couldn't even get out of her poop when she pottied. With work I've got her walking (albeit disjointedly) she has had 4 clutches in 2 years with no issues. Sweet Pea has had 1 so far but no issues. Stay on top off lighting and nutrition and she will most likely be just fine.

Oh it takes Ruby about 2 to 2 1/2 weeks to lay after she starts going nuts. Her appetite drops off a little before that.

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
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.
