Hi and Welcome to the Community!
Anytime random strange behavior or sluggishness creeps in, the first thing to do is a battery pop reboot. With power ON, remove the back cover and pull out the battery. Wait about a minute then replace the battery and cover. Power up and wait patiently through the long reboot -- ~5 minutes. See if things have returned to good operation. Like all computing devices, BB's suffer from memory leaks and such...with a hard reboot being the best cure.

OK lets resolve your battery issue first OK...it's too difficult to try and diagnose different problems at the same time. Also, would you mind posting with complete words, sentences, etc.? It's hard for some of us to interpret "text speak"...thanks.
To test your battery, this sequence is needed:
The results of this will indicate if it's your BB or your battery that has the problem.
Good luck and let us know!

I had a similar problem with the trackpad. I pulled the battery. Left it out for more then a minute as was suggested. Why? so that all the stored energy is allowed to drain out. I was returning the battery to quickly.
Thanks for that...in very rare circumstances, leaving the battery out longer does indeed make a difference. For the majority of cases, leaving it out for a minute (or even less) is OK...but sometimes leaving it longer does make a difference.
