I have this horrible nagging fear of being bipolar that I can't control, and
I'll get huge bouts of energy where I feel like I could run a mile.  If I go for a bike ride
and ride real fast for a couple minutes it goes away and I am just left anxious. 
It's horrible once I calm down I can compose my thoughts and stop my mind
from racing.  I just want some reassurance that this is anxiety, or something else.

With bi-polar it can be like you are two different people. It is more a mood changing thing. I find with anxiety that we can get bursts of energy every so often. For some if the sun comes out it can lift them and they get this whacky burst of energy. They are so full of life. It can vanish in a day or two. Leaving them confused. Your psychologist might be basing his results on your mood. Bursts on energy wouldn't suggest bi-polar at all.
