    It sounds like she has had a relapse with the wry neck. This can happen, I had it happen after an initial recovery. I would keep her seperate and quiet and continue with the vitamins. If she is unable to eat and drink you will need to hand feed and water her. Wry neck can take some time to over come, weeks and even possibly months.
