Have you tried opening and repairing the document?  Close the document, Then from the Open button browse to where the document is located. Select the document and then click the down arrow next to the Open button and choose Open and Repair.

Also have you tried clearing the Style using Clear All and then re-apply the style?

Yeah, i can't seem to figure out what is going on. I ended up just copying unformatted text into a new document and reformatted.
