My 5 year old is not the same child anymore

Suddenly my son does not listen. I know, he's a kid, but this is new. Usually a warning or a count to 2 will snap him out of anything, not any more. The last two weeks have been a war or the wills. I've taken away toys, TV, earlier bed times, etc. Last night when I took his favorite train away he hit me. I couldn't speak. He has never done this. Then he screamed, so shrilling and loud, that if I didn't give it back he would hit me again. As a mother who lives her life for her child, who up until lately he's been a pretty good listener and learns quickly, I am just at a loss of what to do. I want to figure out WHY he gets so mad over such simple things, and help him communicate. And really if he just listened it wouldn't have happened. Anyone out there with any advice?
