Are these actual symptoms, or just who I am?

I've been struggling with some symptoms for as long as I can remember, and I'm trying to determine if they're a sign of something wrong, or if they are simply personal characteristics that I can do nothing about.
Background info: I'm a 22 year-old male and am not currently taking any medications or being treated for any medical issues.
Here are my symptoms:
=== Susceptibility to burnout ===
I often obsessively do something (a new hobby, for example), then have no interest in it a day or two later. This behavior can be seen in more significant aspects of my life as well, as I've attended three colleges, bounce from job to job, and haven't lived in the same place for longer than a year since I was a kid.
=== Compulsive body movements ===
I constantly tighten the muscles in my neck, arms, abdomen, wrists, legs, etc. to the point where it starts to hurt or I get sore (at which point I still can't keep myself from doing it). I also blink excessively (not allergy related), tap my teeth together, and move my mouth in various directions constantly.
=== Lack of motivation ===
Even though I have a strong interest in something (once again, a hobby, for example), I can rarely bring myself to actually do it, even if it requires very little effort to do so. If I do manage to get myself to do it, I can only engage in that activity for a very short amount of time (say, 10 minutes) before I can't take it anymore. But once I'm done with the activity after that 10 minutes, I still have a very strong interest in it.
Any information is greatly appreciated. I do plan to visit a doctor about this, but before I drop money on a copay, I thought I'd at least see if anyone here had any ideas about this.
