Headlight Issue

Well, I went to Taco Bell the other night and when I came back out and fired up the truck my headlight **** felt like it was stuck. When it finally broke over there were no headlights or foglamps! I suspected it might be the switch. I made it home in the dark luckily! Went to Autozone the next morning and checked all the relays and fuses. One of the fuses was bad for the foglamps. I bought a new switch since it was 23 dollars. I got home and started taking panels off to access the switch. When I got it out and plugged in the new one presto I had headlights, but still no foglamps. After popping a couple of fuses I realize I have something going on with my foglamps. Strange since all of it worked fine prior to last Friday night. My headlights seem brighter than before too. Any suggestions on what might be causing the foglamp issue???
