Default carbs and my moods

I have a question:

Why is it that when I switch from a higher carb diet (50% carbs or more) to a lower carb diet (35% or less) do I feel sluggish, tired and cranky? I notice my blood sugar drops more frequently, I am thirsty and want something sweet like fruit badly. Is this withdrawal? Should I abstain a few days, bite the bullet and hope the symptoms go away?

Are there other ways to deal with this, b/c I know it will work for fat loss if I can just suck it up
