Yeah somthing in your credit profile might've spooked them enough to take adverse action against you. Paying double the minimum isn't exactly great, in short term perhaps, as they make interest off you but over period of time? The creditors might start thinking you in some financial difficulties, they want to minimize their risk exposures by lowering your limit and they may continue to do so, each time the balance is lowered so is your limit (balance chasing). Few Creditors (AmEx, Discover, Chase) are known to proactively lower its limit or close it outright, even tho their balance is at zero, but other cards you have, might have high utilizations for long period of times, and or some baddies popped up in your credit profiles.

They did it for some reason, 
you did not supply any other information about your credit report so can't give you a reason why they did it. 

My question to you is why do you carry a balance on Any Credit?

Call the issuer. Don't be afraid to ask. They will tell you why.
