Score Went Down Despite Increase in Credit Limit, Lower Utilization and no new Negatives
My Equifax score just dropped a whopping 42 POINTS! My credit limit doubled since last time I checked (last week), my utilization went down and I have no new negatives on my accounts. I also have no new inquiries or closed accounts. This makes no sense whatsoever and it is extremely frustrating as I've worked very hard to repair my credit.

Usually, an increase in a credit limit is associated with a hard inquiry, although, not necessarily.   Did you perhaps pay off something on your report (loan?).
