I have a grandson the same age. His birthday is 9/11. My grandson get fussy a lot and has problems sleeping because he has eczema head to two. I take care of him every other day. My DIL works and my son is a student. The 3 of us take turns taking care of us. We all agree if any one of us had to take care of him all the time we would have gone crazy. He is still nursing and that helps so much at night.
I've taken child development and psychology courses. Part of it is frustration with not being able to communicate well. If he is crying all the time it would be good to have him evaluated for sensory issues. He may have tactile (touch) issues. That can be treated with occupational therapy.

You might try massage, yoga, teaching him deep breathing and relaxation. What works for my grandson is music. They lived with me when he was a baby and the only way my son could get him to nap was to swaddle him and hold him while he screamed for an hour and then fell asleep. I couldn't do it and hated hearing it. I started playing James Blunt music videos on the computer and held him where he could feel the music from the desk. It worked and it would put him to sleep.
Now he likes lots of music and it will still put him to sleep or calm him when he is falling apart. He likes Jack Johnson, Train, Colbie Callait, Owl City, lots of 70's music, Santana, and others. He can use the mouse and pick songs from his play list.
