Hi there...my goal is to educate you on the particular problem(s) and give you the tools to hopefully solve the issue.
Hi there...the signs that you are describing could be signs of neurologic disorders. Has anything happened that could have scared your cat? Unfortunately, the way it sounds...a complete neurological exam needs to be performed. These test are done by a vet and after those cranial nerve and peripheral nerve tests are done can a diagnosis be done. Also, if those test are all normal...hiding for cats can be a sign of sickness. Cats like to hide when they are sick because they "appear weak to predators." I know you are not preying on your cat but that is a natural response that they have. My recommendation is to contact your vet immediately to get her examined!!!
I hope some of this info has helped...
