We thought for sure, we'd lost Mickey and prayed for a miracle - these little Bettas can surprise us. He may be feeling tired from the bloated feeling and resting more as a result. The pressure is probably affecting his swim bladder, affecting his control.
I would add garlic guard and vita-chem daily (drop the drops right over him even) to help him get in some nutrients.

Dehydrating is done with dropsy but this is constipation and if you dehydrate him it will just make it worse. It will turn the contents of his digestive system to the consistency of cement and he may never be able to pass it.
This is why I consider salt to be easily the most dangerous of aquarium chemicals. It does nasty things to the fish's body chemistry that we do not understand and if it is the wrong thing it is REALLY the wrong thing. So when in doubt NO SALT.

He enjoyed being laying there when he was tired out from swimming knowing he could get to the surf to breath. I am sure you could to the same thing with a silk plant.
