Don't feed her for a few days until it gets better. Don't worry, she won't starve.

Fast her for a few days to a week, and then if that doesn't work, cook a frozen pea, de-shell it, chop it up very finely, and feed it to her, the amount she'd usually eat.

Nope, SBD is pretty common actually... just give her some pea and she'll be fine. :)
