Question balloon molly needs help

Hi. My balloon molly seems to be struggling, like she's fighting hard to keep herself from flipping over. I've had her for about 10 months. Can i save her?

It sounds like a swim bladder issue. Is she bloated at all? I know with balloon mollies that can be hard to tell. Feed a frozen pea to ease if she is constipated.
