Default Scary episode with Dekka.. need ideas.

So Dekka wasn't quite herself. Snarked at Dash. Sat and gave me the strangest stare. Hubby got her up on the chair with him and she started to shake. BIG all over shakes.

He put her down and there was something obviously wrong. Her back was hunched, her tail was tucked down and to the side and rigid. She kept standing there picking up one back leg and extending and flexing the leg repeatedly but not touching the floor. Then she switched to the other leg. I was ready to go wake the vet up. When her tail wagged and she started to move. She started out walking very wide behind with little joint flexion, and then was fine. Hungry, happy, waggy normal..

So I didn't take her to the vet (no symptoms to show and no obvious pain when her back and hips were checked). Pinched nerve? Muscle spasm? Anything I should be careful of and/or watch for? ATM she is not being allowed to jump or do stairs. LOL at least we are trying our best. She is also wearing her Back on track coat in case its muscle.

I was first really scared as it looked similar to when she was kicked in the head. The hunchy, the shaking and the weird stiff legged gait so I was worried it could be neurological.. but I don't think that would have gotten better in a few min.
