It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see a doctor, preferably a psychiatrist.
Wish you good health!

It is not likely to have more than one psychiatric disease and they all have specific diagnosis criteria that have to be met. Best would be to discuss your symptoms with your pediatrician who can further clarify in proper context.
