interesting swim bladder question

So I'm typing away at my computer, and I happen to look up at my fish tank. One of my female guppies was apparently swimming and got stuck between my fry net and the glass. Vertically. I thought she was dead, but when I moved the net, she kinda flopped away, like she was drunk. She didn't swim vertically, but she couldn't swim normal either. If this is a swim bladder problem, and she gets stuck again horizontally (like she just did), would her swim bladder right itself? I know that if you keep a fish w/ a sb problem in shallow water, sometimes it fixes (at least I read that on a discus website). What do y'all think? Should I let her free so soon?
