    Not a big user of Yoast but Isn't there a part in the configuration of the plugin where you state the basic rewritting of your title tags and description?

    Recovering the lost data is easy if you have a db backup previous to your yoast install and made after your work on meta datas, if not I'm not sure that's even possible.

    Ouch. Sorry to hear about the trouble.

    First question: do you still have the old plugin you used before the Yoast install (AIO, SEO Ultimate, Platinum, etc.)? If you do, then your data is still in the account. And you can recover it and transfer all that data over seamlessly to Yoast by using a transposing plugin like SEO Data Transporter.

    If you don't, then you may want to try disabling the Yoast plugin, then turning it on again. If that doesn't work, you have two other options:

    - you can try to upgrade to Yoast Premium which will unlock actual support assistance as has already been recommended in this thread.
    - you can go through ALL of your plugins and disable them one at a time except for Yoast. If there is a conflict causing Yoast to malfunction, this will unearth it. I've done this myself many times.

    Good luck and keep us updated at your end!
