i adjusted my truss rod to ease up the action goin on in my neck, until the action was smooth and everything was good and right(i play a Yamaha AES 420, with a glued on neck........)

i had about 12 gauge strings, which by the way were the culprit for warping the neck.

so that day my teacher gave me 11 gauge strings,and i put em on and the notes wont even sound when i fret them! because the neck is so close to the strings it mutes them unless its an open note(really buzzy though!).

what i think happened here was that the 12 gauge put alot of stress on the neck so when it was adjusted to where i wanted, once the stress was gone after i took off the strings the neck straightened out a little too much maybe getting upbowish


So now do i take it to the shop, or do i do something with the truss rod?

^^right...
you have probably tightened your truss rod before to match the tension of 12's. now that you've put 11's, there's less tension on the neck so it's got a back bow i guess. just realease your truss rod a bit until the neck is straight or with a little relief.
turn in small amounts (1/8 or 1/4 of a turn) and after each turn leave the neck to settle for at least 30 minutes to see actual results...
EDIT: next time you want to adjust action, you should adjust at the bridge first, and then if you need more fine adjusting, then use the truss rod.
EDIT2: and don't push anything too much, you don't want to screw up your neck...
