    Welcome to Android Central! That sounds ominous--the hardware might be starting to fail. I would take this opportunity to make sure all of your important data (including photos) are backed up or synced.

    Then try booting into Safe Mode, which temporarily disables all 3rd party apps. https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-11423

    If the problem disappears in Safe Mode, then something you installed is causing the problem. You may have to uninstall apps one by one until the problem disappears. If the problem persists in Safe Mode, then it's more likely to be a hardware or firmware problem.
