Hi and Welcome to the Community!
Given your description, 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 more drastic remedy attempts may be necessary (e.g., WIPE, reload, "bare-bones" test, etc.).
As a side note...I might have suspected moisture intrusion as that can have a similar effect...but, at the end, you said
and i've even updated my OS from 7.0 to 7.1 awhile ago and it looked like it vanished but after awhile this problem came back..
which leads me to discount the moisture intrusion theory.
Good luck and let us know!
