My 2.5 year is literally whining/screaming/crying for something every ten minutes

And if I don’t give in to his every whim he has absolute meltdowns that do not stop. Comforting him doesn’t work, it just makes him angry. Talking to him doesn’t work, he just screams louder. Ignoring the tantrum doesn’t work, he just flips his shit even more. I told my husband I feel hostage by him because if I don’t give him whatever he is screaming for every ten minutes then the fit is absolutely uncontrollable.
