Looks/sounds like Popeye. Probably an injury. You can keep the water clean and hope it heals on its own, do Epsom salt baths to reduce swelling, treat with aquarium salt, use something like Paraguard in case there's external infection, or use something like Kanaplex (kanamycin) for internal infection.

I've moved it to a quarantine tank and added a little salt.

Sorry, I guess your post didn't show up in my alerts earlier so I missed your previous update!
Can you get meds or order any? What kind of salt did you use?
