Hi. You really sound like you're in the bipolar spectrum to me. I have cycled up and down similar to yours but on a scale of a week or two - extreme exhaustion/misery and then an unexplainable lift to something closer to normal energy. I don't seem to really go "high", though I can be terribly anxious and my therapist's observation is that she's seen me rather agitated. This up and down pattern, plus other subtle clues such as poop-outs on several antidepressants led to my bipolar II diagnosis. I don't think you have to go hypomanic in the traditional sense in order to have some component of bipolarity (is that a word?) to your illness. You might benefit from a mood stabilizer. I'm on Lamictal, Neurontin, Klonopin, and atenolol (beta blocker short circuits some of the anxiety).
