Hi and Welcome to the Community!
At an internet distance, all we can do is guess and provide you with methods to try and diagnose it for yourself...there's no way for us to actually tell you what the problem is...only give you suspicions based on the information you provide. So, with that...
Any chance the BB got wet? What you describe is consistent with that...if so, then
REMOVE YOUR BB BATTERY NOW!!!
Run, don't walk, to this FAQ:
Do everything it says, including waiting the maximum recommended time (maybe longer...5 days is not unusual). Applying power to your BB between it getting wet and doing this process reduces the chances of success. Further, the only thing predictable about moisture intrusion into a BB (indeed, any electronic device) is that the results will be unpredictable. I've seen some come back up right away and be fine. I've seen others never work at all. I've seen still others run for a bit, and then die later. And every thing in between.
For further diagnosis, I recommend that you attempt to boot into Safe Mode:
It may take you multiple attempts to get the ESC key sequence (press/release/hold) correct, so be patient. When successfully into Safe Mode, see what happens.
If the behavior ceases, then think carefully...what happened just before this behavior started? A new app? An update? A Theme? Something else? Think carefully as the smallest change could be causal...and attempt to undo whatever that was.
If the behavior continues, then you may well have something more serious requiring perhaps a WIPE, an OS reload, and perhaps even hardware failure (for which nothing we can provide would be of any use).
Good luck and let us know!
