Weepy and photophobic. What is going on?

For the last 4 days I have been experiencing a strange phenomenon and it is causing me distress. On Wednesday, approximately 2 hours after I ingested my medication (400mg Wellbutrin 300mg lithium carb, and I also take 300mg at 6pm and 150mg at bed) I began to feel off. This quickly progressed into a strange state where I randomly starting to cry periodically without cause, feeling achy and nauseated, and light sensitive to the point where I had to hide under a cave of blankets and even typing this is painful and I am wearing sunglasses. Since Wednesday morning, this state has been pretty much constant. I didn't go to school Wednesday(day off) Thursday and Friday.
To see if it was the lithium, I did not take my 150mg and morning 300mg dose, but I am still like this. Friends have come over on Wednesday and Thursday to take me out and get me out of the house but I continue to display these symptoms and they show no signs of abating. I am not feeling depressed and not stressed out.
I have been on Wellbutrin 400mg for longer than 8 weeks and never had this problem, and was doing very well on Wellbutrin 400mg and 1mg Abilify but we had to discontinue the Abilify due to TD.
I called my psychiatrist on Friday but never got a call back. I cannot get any work done like this, I'm pretty much incapacitated. As soon as I'm done typing this I'm going back in my blanket cave with sunglasses on.
What the hell could be going on and what should I do? I know you're not a doctor/my doctor but I'm clueless.
