Everything Bearded Dragons

GOD. I am almost out of my mind! Damien's been so...argh! lately. Ordinarily she's calm and docile and falls asleep in your lap. Ever since I brought her to a PetCo Beardie Meet 'n' Greet (I was the only one with a dragon besides the owner...), she's been frantic. Glass dancing 24/7, running ALL over the house, taking craps at coincidental times (she believes the world is her diaper), and being more aggressive than usual.
She also only wants her bok choy and refuses worms 9 out of 10 tries, which is usual for her. I powder her greens with calcium and vitamin supplement occassionally so she won't starve, but it's odd behavior considering she's just so active all of the sudden. I thought maybe she was going to lay some eggs because the dragon she met at the store was male and she was really curious about him (I didn't let them have any physical contact), but she doesn't really feel any bigger, and I feel no lumps, aaaand she's not been digging. Just frantic to get out of her cage and charge all over the house.
Can anyone explain this behav--yeah, she's head bobbing frantically at her own reflection right now. >___> Ugh. Any ideas why she's suddenly acting nuts? She's about 1 year + 2 months, give or take. I wonder if it's because she's mature now? Because this is her 2nd summer and she wasn't half as active as when she was a juvenile. She was about 2 months old when we got her in March. It's just very out of character for a docile lizard like herself.
(It's been going on for the past 2 weeks)
