Are teeth approaching? Have you tried a dose of Tylenol or equivalent, or homeopathic...
That sounds like an appalling situation, Lisa I can see why you're so torn - it's your health as well as your child's, and it's so hard to be a good mother when you are so mentally and physically run down? I agree that the waking up screaming sounds like something's going on. Have you had a WBV lately and had them look at ears and nose? Is reflux a possibility? How about trying a partial elimination diet? Just cut out dairy, or dairy, soy and wheat if you can swing it....
I've been reading up on mortgages. I never understood them when we did them at high school, and I still don't!

Good luck with the record keeping. We have a nap/preschool clash too. luckily my husband's work hours/location are flexible so he starts late and works at home putting the baby to sleep while I do the dropoff.
I think it's reactionary.

All the kids I know get needy and clingy and upset easily, and nurse a TON when they're chronically overtired.
