Could be ADD or early bipolar. Getting him to see a child counselor or child psychologist will help.

I would get him assess by a child psychologist or preferably a psychiatrist (psychiatrists are Medical Doctors so they can prescribe medication). Immediately.

In a child so young a diagnosis is tough but it doesn't sound like something he will just grow out of. He must be suffering something terrible. Poor guy. It almost sounds like aspergers or mild autism (the head bunting stuff makes me think of that) or perhaps a head injury as a child that went unnoticed.

I would not leave your 5 year old alone with him as in that state he really could do damage. He can't help himself, and as you said doesn't know his own strength.
