My  2 month old has been crying for the past 2 days. Every time he wakes up at 11:am  he cries at the top of his lungs. I have tried everything I can think of. I feed him, burped him, gave him gas drops, changed him and held him, he will fall asleep for a while but is back up in a hour doing the same thing over again. I went though the same thing with my now 3 1/2  year old daughter. If the is someone out there who is going though or has been though the  same thing PLEASE HELP!!!!

Sounds like Colic, and the exact same thing I went through with my daughter. Does he cry at a certain time of the day for hours and hours on end? Typically evening time? What I use to do was "Burrito Wrap" my daughter very snuggly, and lay her on her belly on top of the dryer (with me standing right there of course) turn the dryer on and the sound, plus the heat would soothe her. She would also fall asleep (if she wasnt wrapped) jerk her arm or leg, wake herself up and scream for hours. I learned that wrapping her kept her from jerking her arms and legs so much and she slep peacefully for hours! You may want to give that a try!!! I know its hard, hang in there! (hugs)

P/S. ~ A good little note, if he is screaming so bad you think your head will pop off your shoulders and you cant stand the noise anymore.... HEADPHONES, and SOOTHING MUSIC!!!! And sit and rock him. If you have the head phones up loud enough you wont hear the crying and you can relax a little while rocking your little man!!
