mixed state?

I am starting to wonder if I am having mixed state episodes or agitated depression. Lately I have been having extreme irritabilty and agitation with physical symptoms llike spine stiffness then the next day my body is sore from exhaustion.   One day my mood will be good but I wouldnt say manic, I dont have classic symptoms like spending alot of money or rapid speech, I am just in a good mood and feel happy, Then the next day I will feel extemely agitated but at the same time I want to be productive, I dont want anyone to bother me or I will explode. I want to jump out of my skin.

It could be, I would ask your psychiatrist. I am mixed a lot with feeling down and depressed, aggitated, and racing thoughts, and that jumping out of the skin feeling and irritable. I'm more likely to have an outburst or self-harm at these times. I also pace a lot and can't focus or concentrate.

thanks for the response, whenever i feel this way i just stay in a quiet room and wait for it to go away, maybe take something to knock me out.
