This is not bloat caused by over eating. Bettas are pigs but they also have a survival mechanism that would tell them to stop eating much earlier than this point.

She either has a tumor or swelling due to an infection or possibly both. Long past the time for epsom salts.

I would put her on epsom salt. starting with 1tsp/ gal probably and working up to 2 tsp/gal. I would also introduce a medication like maracyn 2 also raising the temperature will help. And I would also try adding some tannins into the water such as IAL or oak leaves. I hope she feels better :(

This is either dropsy or severe bloating.
