Apps not working, Chrome won't open, text messages not showing?!

Everything's been fine until my phone randomly restarted itself. As soon as it came back up I kept getting error messages that various apps had stopped working (most that I hadn't even opened/used in months). I uninstalled them bc the error messages kept popping up even after hitting "force close" each time. Then I received a new text message. The notification/beginning of the message displayed on my screen per usual, but when I went into Messanger+ and tried to open the message it wasn't there and neither were any of my messages from any of my previous conversations. Upon first opening Messanger everything looks normal and displays as usual (shows my conversations/text from the last message on the screen), but when I click on a conversation the person's name/number displays at the top per usual, but no messages show. Then I realized Chrome won't work either. It doesn't even begin to open when I click it. Just pops up "Chrome has stopped working". What the heck! I of course restarted several times, powered off and on, turned wi-fi and mobile data off and on. Reset my settings. Nothing. Smiley Sad Apps like Facebook & Snapchat work fine though.
