It sound as if it is conditioned response. You may want to look back on what you were doing between 12 and 5 pm previously that was giving you agitations. Your body was responding to that stimulus and seems to still be doing so though you did not pay attention to what it was and possibly may not exist now for you to see but you could look back and understand.
