I'm sorry to hear that Roxi was acting oddly last night and less active today?
What breed is she? weight?
Has she continued to show any signs today and this evening?
How's her appetite? Any diarrhea?
Ok, that is understandably concerning. So far, her symptoms have been rather vague. It is possible that her yelping and darting away could be from abdominal pain or back/nerve pain. Since she is still eating/drinking/urinating/defecating normally, and has had no vomiting. I recommend that you continue to monitor her closely.
If she develops any new symptoms, I recommend taking her to your veterinarian for an exam to determine if the source of her discomfort can be identified and is repeatable.

Just checking in. How is Roxi doing today?
Thank you for the update. I'm sorry to hear that she's still acting strangely.
Were any diagnostics performed for Roxi today? (bloodwork, xrays)?
What medication is she taking now?
Still no other symptoms other than the acting different and hiding?
That is my suspicion as well, that she may have injured her back. Dogs with back pain can react in ways very similar Roxi.
I assume she was dispensed a pain medication today.
I hope she takes it well for you and that with rest her pain subsides and she returns to her normal energetic self.
