Baby cries when I don't look at him?

He's not hungry, wet, tired, or bored. It doesnt matter if I'm holding him, playing with him, talking to him, or what. Without eye contact he screams. Normally he's a very quiet baby but these past few days have been hellish. He's 7 months old by the way. Suggestions?
