Sounds like it may be a ph issue. I would do a 50% water change.
Also...your nitrates shouldn't be that low if you only do weekly changes and don't have an ass load of plants. You may want to take a water sample into a lfs to make sure your test kits are working.

The ph out of my tap is 7.0. All I have in this tank is driftwood and moss. Some spider wood.

With weekly water changes the ph shouldn't drop that fast. I would bet you have very soft water with little buffering capacity. Mine is the same...and I had a ph crash with my catfish.
Turn off the lights if you haven't. In an hour or two do another 50% change. Just try to keep the temp as close to the same as you can and use dechlorinator.

You should just leave him alone for awhile imo, maybe he is just extremely stressed. Something must of happened near his tank or something idk.
If I were you Id add salt and leave him alone in the dark and dont let him see you around. Im a firm believer in aquarium salt for different purposes.
