I agree with PP - if your baby will fall asleep in bed with you, do what you need to get as much sleep for both of you as possible. At the 1yo mark, many babies are learning to walk - or just about getting there. All of these BIG NEW things throw them off...not to mention, he may still be working on some teeth...and soon to come with be the molars. Crying is not the answer...he needs something - comfort, pain relief, someone to help him calm down...he's not crying for nothing.
Keep night time - night time (don't turn on lights or engage in eye contact or conversation) but do tend to him. This will pass soon enough...and while it doesn't seem like it now, he'll be driving right after that!!
