Unfortunately, your photo did not come through. I am unable to identify the problem.

There are a few reasons that this would happen, though.

Overwatering can cause many symptoms and promote disease. Make sure to let this one dry, thoroughly, down to about 2 or 3 inches before watering again.

If this is an infection brought about by watering habit, then a fungicide may be necessary.

Another possibility will be, actual, deficiencies or pH swings.

There is a possibility of it having contracted Mosaic Virus. This is not treatable and will mean that the plant will need to be discarded.

Here are some articles that will help:
