My crying son is making me cry

My son has been whiney, clingy and just not a pleasant person to be around today.  He is not sick because he is still very active and has a good appetite. No fever, cough or runny nose.  Nothing seems to be hurting. Except my head. 

He is three years old and has stopped taking naps in the afternoon.  He used to take a one to two hour nap every single day.  Since he turned three, nothing.  Just sleeping about 9-10 hours at night.  The reason- We finally got rid of all of the binkies.  We threw them all in the trash can. My husband somehow got my son to sleep at night without his binky. The only problem is he still asks for them almost every day. 

He will not take a nap without a binky.  He also is having a lot of trouble calming down when he is tired.  He is used to relying on the binky for comfort. I know I should have taken it away sooner. I have created this monster and now I have to deal with the consequences.  Today  he was so upset, he bit me.  We have never had a problem with biting before.  I just do not know what to do.  Has anyone else had the same trouble?  Please help me.
