It’s hard to be certain, but it certainly doesn’t sound good. Given what you have said about the skin, there is a possibility of chitrid if she has been exposed to other amphibians. What is more likely is impaction of some kind. If the alimentary tract is badly blocked, she will not be able to eat, because there’s nowhere for the food to go. It definitely sounds like a trip to the vet is called for, but until then, a forced bath will help keep her hydrated. The skin wrinkling may be due to dehydration and the bath will help a lot. She needs to be bathed for 20 minutes daily, and the humidity in her habitat raised.

What sort of substrate is she kept on?
