You might want to take it to a different sharpener too. I've had horrid sharpening jobs where one skate just goes in a different direction or better yet when I turn sharp it's like one of my skates is a bmx bike in gravel. Generally if your edges "feel" off - and they didn't feel that way before, something is up. You stepped on concrete, you chipped it near the bench or the sharpener got one edge too deep etc.
Trust your feel for the ice, it's what keeps you upright
