Baby won't stop screaming - what am I doing wrong?

My 9 month old baby is forever screaming. Piercing, angry, screams complete with a beet red face and tears streaming down her face. Unless she's crawling on me. She won't sit with me, let me rock her or anything. If I sit on the floor she'll crawl on me and play with toys, although even then she sometimes screams at me. If I even stand up she starts wailing. I've tried using a baby wrap - this works for a short while but it usually doesn't take long before she's screaming right in my ear. I thought it was just a stage that would go away, but it's been months already - and now she's crawling so if I walk away she follows me. I usually make supper and do chores while she cries underfoot.

Any advice would be welcome! I am at the end of my rope! I have 2 other kids and a household to take care of - I can't sit on the floor all day with her.

She has two teeth already, but she doesn't appear to be teething right now. She doesn't seem to want to just chew on everything....is it possible to be teething for like 2 months without teeth breaking through?

is your baby teething? 'coz that can be one reason she's screaming probably in pain.
