she was not eating for around two weeks but last time she drank was one week ago , and I have been searching for tortoise vets but I couldn't find anything and before she was having a problem which I have posted but no one answered:

so today I woke up and the tortoise was closed inside its shell ,normaly when I touch it and it's inside it will move its head a little bit when sleeping except this time it didn't move at all

With my first Russian tortoise (had her two weeks... they shipped her injured, she got a super bad infection, Exotics vet gave her stuff and she still passed) she looked exactly like this when she died but prior to that the vet told me to soak her in warm water for 30 minutes just in case. I hope this helps some.

I am so sorry you are going through this. I am more sorry that we didn't see your original post. I'm not sure how that happened.
