My JRT doesn't want to go on walks anymore

My 3 yeard old JRT Coco loves going on walks outside, but lately shes been scared every time we go out. We used to walk 2 miles and then she started not even leaving the neighborhood. Now she doesn't go out at all and goes away when I ask her if she wants to go for walk. She used to be so excited to see her leash to go outside and now she hides. I don't know what happened to her. We didnt have an altercation with another dog or any bad experience. I walk her and her brother who is also a JRT named Symba together and he has no problem (he is also deaf). Everytime i try to take her outside she just rushes to get back inside and if we walk shes get huge anxiety and her tongue starts to turn purple so I have to carry her back. I dont know what to do, I just want her to enjoy her walks again it was her fav thing to do !
