Re: feeling like nothing i'm doing is right
I had really bad OALD. Like spray the cat sitting on the other end of the couch with milk kind of bad. The frequent, voluminous, even projectile spit ups often accompany OALD. Gas is common as well. I would massage my baby's tummy and bicycle his legs between feedings through out the day to help work out the gas incrementally. That helped a little bit with fussiness in the evenings. Weird sounds while nursing also come with OALD. My son made a whole host of disturbing gasping, gurgling, clicking, choking sounds while he nursed.

It's certainly a good idea to look into reflux, but be aware that OALD can cause all of the things that you are describing too.
