Inconsolable Crying

My five month old can be sleeping peacefully one minute and screaming inconsolably the next. His screams are heart wrenching and he seems in severe pain. I hold him while he naps (it is the only way he will nap) and he sleeps in bed with me so its not due to waking up alone. I was also reading that he is too young for night terrors, is that correct? He had colic for the first three months, could that contribute to this? I dont know what to do for him. I hold him close and talk to him while he is screaming, but it doesnt seem to help and sometimes it is like he doesnt even know Im there. He is big on comfort nursing, but cant even calm down to do that. I feel so lost, has anyone experienced this?
