TECH SUPPORT?????

Guys I have a Macbook 13’ and for some reason recently my cursor/trackpad has been acting up so that it stops moving or randomly jumps around/lags really badly sometimes. I have the sensitivity up really high and I’ve read that it might be a battery or touchpad driver problem???? Anybody got any nuggets of techie wisdom that might solve this???
