A lot of my life I'm very cluttered and stressed, can't concentrate, anxiety attacks, I can never fully relax and appreciate life, but sometimes, and it seems to be triggered by relaxing events, but also happen randomly, I click into the zone, I get hyper productive, I'll totally clean my room and then spend an hour moving my lamp back and forth, knock out homework, then take a relaxing shower, and sit in bed thinking about how great life is, can last hours, days, I think it lasted a week once, but then it creeps back up on me. Usually flaring up bad, I decided to finally talk to my DR about it due to this more than the typical stuff of forgetting my keys 6 times in a row, catching myself pondering the difficulty of paying attention in class after I attempted to force myself to pay attention etc.

Does anyone else find their ADD, ADHD tends to cycle, or flair up and down with other mood effects?

So... you don't mean symptoms of bipolar disorder at all, right? You mean that with ADHD you're sometimes back and forth between periods of intense activity and equally-intense inactivity :) - is that correct?

Actually, it sounds like the OP could potentially be going through periods of hypomania.

OP - do you have a decreased need for sleep when this happens?
