So, it seems like no one else has had this problem...ever. But my T3 just will not go past 1/200, and the flash isn't on! No matter what mode, it won't exceed 1/200. I've had to postpone my action shot business because of this, and Canon suggests sending it in but I'm a little scared to do that

1/200 is your max camera-flash sync speed. Your flash can't operate in normal mode at a shutter speed faster than 1/200. You should have the camera in HSS (high speed sync) mode to use flash at faster than 1/200.
Try resetting all the settings in your camera to default settings. It sounds like you have maybe turned HSS off and maybe something else on top of that. I think the camera is in HSS by default. If the reset doesn't work look in the settings menu to be sure HSS is on.
