Worried About My Cham

I have two female veiled chameleons about 3 or 4 months in age. I came home from work last night and one of them were laying on her side on the bottom of her cage. I nudged her and she stood up, eventually she started climbing but was extremely slow. I misted their cage more often throughout the night and all day today. She looks healthy but wasn’t moving around much.
