Just wanted to let you know you are not alone.
Hugs! I feel the same way too sometimes.
Yep that sounds familiar to me too.
Best advice I have is get an OT evaluation--SPD is a highly individual thing, but in the meantime, here's a few resources I've found helpful:   Autism Discussion Page covered this topic last month: https://www.facebook.com/autismdiscussionpage?fref=ts   https://www.facebook.com/pages/SPD-Connect/   https://www.facebook.com/difflearn  (general, but lots of tools for learning differences--so once you have some specific ideas of what might help, here's where you can go...
Hugs to you!  Yes, teething is AWFUL!!!!!  Awful, awful, awful!   Really, it seems like such a cruel joke on babies...
