Constant urge to jump

Patient : Hi I am a 21 yr old female with constant urge to jumprun. I have to urges all throughout the day and it distracts me from doing basic activities such as studying or anything really. It feels like i'm going to explode if i don't move and release this energy. When i'm home i will jump on the trampoline for hrs, or if i'm inside just jump side to side it's really weird. I also will run for extremely long periods of time trying to suppress the energy. I have had urges since around 12 but noticed them more since i have been in college and my extra curricular activities have declined. What could this be?
