It probably invovles some sort of bacterial infection. It could be caused by impaction. I would try a good antibiotic like furanase or nitrofurazone first. If the fish was eating then I would add...

You will probably get rid of velvet by leaving the tank fishless for a couple of months. Drying also kills it, but that would be more for a quarantine tank.

Possibly an internal bacterial infection causing a build up of gases inside. How do you store your foods and how old are they? I would probably treat the fish with nifurpirinol, nitrofurazone or...

Do you have the fish in quarantine? Resistance to FW dips can vary, but I would try that first. Use the same temperature and pH. A couple of weeks in hyposalinity may work as well. If neither works...

I would treat the fish with Maracyn-Two, nitrofurazone or furanase.It sounds like a systemic bacterial infection to me. Wouldn't hurt to use hypo to if you keep the pH up.

My guess is that the fish got an internal vibrio bacterial infection due to the stress and subsequent suppressed immune function.
