In brief: Get evaluated

Could be add/adhd.
See your primary care doctor or a psychiatrist to be tested. Word of caution: don't take someone else's medication. Things like Ritalin (methylphenidate) will give you a positive drug test which - if you don't have a legitimate prescription - can cause you obvious legal problems.
