I often do that, I suddenly find myself walking up and down the stairs a lot, think it's a way of helping to get rid of some of the built up energy in the system.

I also find myself doing this when the panic is coming in strong. I think it's a way of doing something to keep yourself pre-occupied that also causes a routine, which can calm us. I also notice I will sit and rock back and forth without realizing I'm doing it when I get extremely anxious.
