My score dropped by 80 points after using 80% of my balance. I paid it off, will my score recover?
On the next credit cycle which is 30 days away, will I recover the 50 points that I lost?

Yes it should recover unless something else has changed in the process. You should also watch your FICO scores as they are the important ones to watch.

Try using no more than 10% of the available credit, and pay it in full when the bill comes in.  That way, your score will not drop.
