Goldfish very ill

My poor Goldfish is sick. I've tried so many things to help her but I'm stuck now.
She is swimming in a jerky circular motion and has trouble with her swim bladder.
She has a couple of lumps on her body that are sticking out.
She has been showing signs of constipation with stringy poop.

I had my water tested and it was high in nitrates. I add a treatment solution to help with this and the levels have returned to normal.
I've given her peas to help her clean her digestive tract.
I've been slowly changing the water to keep it clean.

I have a video of her but can't find where to upload it.

Please help!
