This was my son at the same age. An amber teething necklace stopped the whinging (seriously, he had improved within the day) and the rest of it was just a long frustrating stage that we had to go through that felt like it was never going to end.
The good news is he is nearly 2 1/2 now and he is the sweetest, most beautiful little boy. My mum watches him when I'm at uni and she tells me and everyone that he is the easiest kid in the world to look after, and he is. He still bites every now and then, but far less than he used to and it is always when he is teething (he is a very slowly teether..only getting tooth no. 14 now).
I have no advice on how to help you now. DS was a nightmare of a child and I wanted to pull my hair out constantly. But it did end.

Our Toddler room is 15 months to 2 years, and that is the room with the biting, hitting and tantruming. Some start just prior to moving up, but by 2 only a few are still doing it as they communicate better verbally. If you know what it's for, try to give him the words. Like if he bites because he wants a toy, stop the bite and say "Would you like the toy? You say 'toy please' not biting" then repeat the 'toy please' part as you hand him a toy. He might not say it for a while yet but if you say "use your mouth for talking, toy please" often enough while you stop the biting he will eventually catch on. It might take months though, just so you know. The smarter ones are usually more stubborn
