Agitated Russian tortise

Please help, my son brought his tortise downstairs to show a friend. This has never caused her to be agitated before but when he put her back she began to run around and breathe heavy. Has this happened to anyone and if so what should we do?

I'm not sure, but I have a rescue russian who was not properly take care of and whenever he gets in a stressful situation his head and front arms start to twitch like a seizure. Try to put it in a quiet and dark place to it could calm down and maybe take a nap to relax.
