Sounds like he might be in some kind of pain. I'd take him to the pedi.

Could it be a combination of pain/discomfort and overtiredness? My daughter used to get downright hysterical just from being overtired.

How would I know if he is teething because he is restless, has a lot of saliva, keeps putting his hands in his mouth and screaming really loud?

Everything together with the refluc and not being able to sleep because of a constant belly ache must be part of it but the doctors have gave me things a while back to stop that and it worked, so confused now

It could be teething. I would just be worried that it's constant. Try giving him some Tylenol and if it doesn't seem to get better, take him in.

Sounds like teething....i would give him a small dose of tylenol if he is screaming that bad, then maybe get some teething tablet or teethers that you freeze

Try gripe water, my 16 month old had colic and acid reflux we did gripe water and it worked miracles. Matter of fact she is still on it. It help's with all digestive problems hope that helps momma

my 5 month old has been the same way, and not sleeping well at all. the only thing thats kinda helped us is giving him a bath with lavender soap and a bottle of warm formula. sometimes that wont work and we'll have to tickle him/ play with him to tire him out.

Could be teething my 7week old had a strange cry and was drooling a lot so it could have to do with teething
