If you can follow these steps you will be able to find out your account's email address:

support.xbox.com/.../forgot-microsoft-account

Am I correct in that you've tried to contact Support and been unable to verify yourself as the account holder? If not, go ahead and contact them here: support.xbox.com/contact-us

You could try following the next link and try it with a couple different plausible email addresses and see if any of them make anything happen. It's the account recovery page, and you'll need to provide details to prove ownership of the account.
