Sounds a bit like a problem I had not too long back.

When you say "it feels different", does it feel looser than before, as in you don't feel any resistance? In my case a small roll pin had come out of the mechanism and turning the key did not turn the connecting rod to the inner lockworks. I could also turn the key almost 360*. Try centering the key and pulling out, if it doesn't come out try turning the lock 180* and try pulling out again.
