Take your equation and to see things better replace Sqrt[1+3x^2] by a 
symbols, say a:

-Sqrt[1+3x^2]/(1+Sqrt[1+3x^2]) +
Log[Exp[Sqrt[1+3x^2]]] - Sqrt[1+3x^2]Log[Exp[Sqrt[1+3x^2]]]/(1+Sqrt[
1+3x^2]) == 0/.Sqrt[1+3x^2]->a

-(a/(1 + a)) + Log[E^a] - (a*Log[E^a])/(1 + a) == 0


(-a + Log[E^a])/(1 + a) == 0

This reduces to Log[E^a]==a. This equation holds in a part of the 
complex plane (including the real line) and is not valid elsewhere (e.g. 
for a = 2Pi I). Not surprisingly Mathematica cannot combine this 
information with the rest of your equations.
