Miyabi,
Miyabi,
It will be difficult to avoid restoring your phone. I would suggest putting the phone DFU mode and then restore it. Since you want to avoid restoring, you can also try a hard reset and see if that makes a difference. To complete a hard reset...
 
Hold the sleep/wake button at the top right and the home button at the same time.
 
Hold them until the screen goes black. You may even need to keep holding them after the red power off slider appears. If it does, just keep holding the buttons.
 
Once the Apple appears you can let go since your phone should now be rebooting.
 
If you see no change with that, then I suggest replacing the battery. It is possible that your battery is at the end of its life cycle and no longer holds a charge. Of course there are plenty of other options, but they would all require you to restore your phone. The guide for the repair [guide|1545|is here.] Definitely back up your phone more frequently...:)
