Shedding can certainly cause stress and odd behavior. They can be quite irritable and lose appetite during a shed but it usually goes back to normal quickly after the shed is done.

How do you get rid of stuck shed on a bearded dragon?

Use lukewarm water and allow them to soak for 15ish minutes 2-3 times a week, or 3-4 times a week if the shed is retained/difficult. If the shed is proving to especially be stubborn, try using a soft bristle toothbrush and GENTLY brushing your dragon while theyre in their bath.
