My hamster fell down the stairs in her ball 2 hours ago. But a 1/2 hour ago she started spining in her ball, like she is chasing her tail.

When she first fell she was fine. Any were i put her she sill spins. What is wroung with her.

Well, she might be traumatized, or just very dizzy. I would check her eyes, see if they are dilated or if they have trouble focusing. I would take her to the vet, she might have gotten brain damage from the fall. But, most likely if she is just spinning in her ball she is just being a hamster. Still, check her eyes to be safe. And feel her heart beat.

Like AnimeFreak831 said it might be scared about the ball now, so try taking her out and see what happens, it might work. Or she might still be in shock about falling.
