Lethargic, pale

I have a 10 month old female veil. She is usually very hissy and does not like to be touched. Tonight we found her lying in the bottom of her Atrium cold, and very pale. She is so lethargic she didn't react when I picked her up. I am think dehydration so I did the shower and plant trick. This perked her up some but she still isn't moving or even opening her eyes. The last picture was 2 days ago. Please help

I think i see burn marks on her spine too. How close can she get to the heating lamp? And what are your temps for basking?
Yes when she was little she got to close to the top of the cage. Since then I have lowered her branches. Her baking light is 75w her Uvb light is a 15w T8

In your profile picture looks like she has some sort of injury on her right side too. Do you know how that happened? In the photo it looks like she is getting way too close to the lamp, and im assuming thats the heating lamp.

But what are the temps at the basking branch? 75w is a little high, depending on the distance too.

It's too hot if you wanted to move your hand. You need to raise it so she can't get burned by climbing in the roof of the cage...even if you then have to raise the branch. It's not safe otherwise.

I have to get her to want to move first. She us just lying there right now. She won't move away from me. Which isn't right. She usually hisses, jumps at me, and acts tough.
