Sadly, nothing probably. I didn't see you answer your other questions. When was your last water change? How about ammonia readings?
Honestly, it sounds like ammonia poisoning to me, and not a constipation problem at all. 7 goldfish in a 15 gallon tank is a whole lot more than you should have. I know it may not seem like it now, but they really do produce ALOT of waste. If you do a good gravel vaccuming, you'll notice this.
I remember a few months ago when you asked about tank mates for your comet, and it was reccomended that you don't add anything else, and actually get a larger tank for it if you wish to keep it. The same advice still stands, except now you've got way more than you should have. Sadly, it's just going to keep causing you problems, I'm afraid. Not what you want to hear I'm sure, but it's the truth.
Keep doing daily water changes. If you don't have a test kit, you can buy one or take your water to your LFS
to get tested. That would help alot.
