Hyper active 3 year old

My son recently just turned 3 and daddy left a few months ago for the military so we are relaxed into our own routine now with baby brother. Anyways, around 5 at night EVERY NIGHT my son gets very hyper active, jumping on furniture, jumping off furniture, running in circles, up and down the halls, bouncing, well you get the point. I took him to a new doctor and she watched him off and on for about fifteen minutes and said he didn't have ADHD or ADD or anything like that. But everyone I know who either has or has raised children with ADHD says my son definiately has it. I've cut back all sugar from his diet, he's barely even getting any juice its mostly water, i try to encourage him to sit and play with me instead with sit down games or toys but he won't do it, he'll get too rough trying to play different games with me where I tell him no mommy doesnt like that its too rough and then he gets mad. I've tried to make him sit down quietly with no tv or radio until he can calm down but its not working. I try taking him to parks during the day right before we go home for dinner or even take him for walks but he's still wound up with energy at the same time every night and it lasts until i put him to bed. I'm out of ideas, I asked family and friends for advice and they have no idea what to do either. My son is a good boy, he knows his manners, he's potty trained, we dont have problems going to sleep, he's a boy he's rough and hyper but this is officially out of control. PLEASE advice would be amazing!!!
