Weird swimming

Hi.My name is Flavia im a new member.9 months ago i bought a female beta fish.She was doing fine.A few days ago i noticed she has a bump on the beggining of her tail.I thought she was gravid and i even bought a gorgeous male to help her delivering the eggs.But when i saw photos of a gravid female i noticed she isnt gravid because the bump is on her tail not on her belly.Then she started to swim weird on her sides or upside down.But she is still eating well when she is able to reach the food what is becoming harder and harder because she cannot control the direction of her body.

Whats going on?any idea?

Thanks Flavia
