I would think then that nitrate had been pretty high and possibly there's been a nitrite or ammonia spike that was missed. I would suggest some more water changes at around 25% a day for the next few days to reduce nitrate further and treat the whole tank with a double dose of Prime on the first change a it will help detoxify the exiting nitrate.
Ongoing, she may be less inclined to suffer swim bladder type issues if you can stick to a regime of changing 25% of the water and doing a good gravel vac every week as Fancies often have these kinds of issues with nitrate build-up.
FX for her.
